Multisensory handwriting is a tool commonly used as an approach for handwriting for children who are just learning letter formation, children with learning disabilities and children who have difficulty with handwriting or children learning cursive.
This includes 1 page for introducing to parents (page 4-6- 3 different pages but they are not customizable – you cannot type in the pages, sorry! ), 5 pages (pages 7– 11) of strategies including tips and directions with SOME of the explanations, to clarify. There is 1 page (page 12) that is the chart of all the ideas.
Multisensory approaches can help children to practice handwriting in a fun way. Multisensory approach taps into senses by having children practice using sensory experiences (ie: textures, movement, etc.)
Practice makes perfect and using a multisensory approach helps to make handwriting practice fun and can increase repetitions!
Multisensory handwriting approach can also help students to explicitly remember handwriting strokes by tapping into their senses.
Multisensory approaches should always be used with explicit teaching.
Many of these multisensory experiences overlap, some of them are listed on multiple pages, and others are just listed once. Tips and directions are included with SOME of the explanations, to clarify.
