Handwriting Improvement Program

Get HIP!

Unbridled Rehab offers the Handwriting Improvement Program (HIP) for either 1:1 needs or small group treatment environments.  Alysa Simms, is a certificated Handwriting Without Tears  specialist.  HWT is a multi-sensory approach for beginners learning basic handwriting skills. HWT also uses strategies to correct errors such as letter/number reversals, poor spacing, inappropriate letter size, and more for those having difficulty with handwriting.

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.
