Handwriting Improvement Program
Unbridled Rehab offers the Handwriting Improvement Program (HIP) for either 1:1 needs or small group treatment environments using Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. HWT is a multi-sensory approach using developmentally appropriate sequence and instruction for all learning styles. HWT offers strategies to correct errors such as letter/number reversals, poor spacing, inappropriate letter size, and more for those having difficulty with handwriting. HIP is available to all ages Pre-K through transitioning teens. A HWT prepared and certified therapist is available for consult.
HIP is a 6 week program, 1 hour per week, where an occupational therapist will screen students for both strengths and needs. Participation in HIP will build the student’s confidence in the classroom and during homework activities. The therapist facilitating HIP will assess the student’s grasp, type of utensil used, and positioning, while also teaching the foundations of print or cursive using a developmental sequence, consistent with language promoting, visual, and proprioceptive sensory systems. The weekly practice sessions are packed with multi-sensory tools promoting handwriting speed and fluency that make handwriting fun! Enrollment includes one HWT training book per student.
