Handwriting Skills Training

Do you have children in your classroom with handwriting difficulties?

Would you like more tools to assist this challenging area?

Our fun interactive full day training will equip you to understand and develop handwriting, improve the child’s pencil grip, letter formation and visual perception.

By using the Tree Tops handwriting checklist it will help you to identify areas of weakness and implement measurable user friendly activities to develop handwriting.

Following training each participant will be able to:

  •  Use the Tree Tops handwriting checklist.
  •  Implement appropriate hand/upper limb strengthening activities.
  •  Design multi-sensory writing programmes.
  •  Use appropriate strategies and advice in the classroom.

"Through structure and pushing the boundaries each week we saw a huge change in our son’s relationships with adults and other children. Asking our son about the experience he will tell you that he loves attending Tree Tops because it’s fun and exciting and he can wrestle with the bear in Reception."

"The Think Sensory Not Behaviour Training helped me to think of the underlying cause of many of the behaviours we see in Nursery and lots of positive strategies we can use to prevent them and support individual children.”

"I feel enormously inspired and passionate about implementing strategies to support a wide range of needs for children in our school. I'm excited to work alongside the Tree Tops team!"
