The secret to literacy is in your hands. During this edWebinar, attendees will learn the connection between handwriting and reading and identify how they are explicitly linked to student success. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how teaching handwriting in the classroom supports literacy development. Attend this session to:

  • Identify how handwriting is a foundational skill for reading success
  • Learn the research connecting handwriting and reading
  • Discover multisensory strategies to integrate letter formation, letter naming and letter sounds to promote literacy development

This edWebinar is of interest to PreK-3 educators, administrators, reading specialists, and occupational therapists. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
