SIZE MATTERS HANDWRITING PROGRAM (SMHP) is the most efficient way of promoting printing consistency and competence. More than a font, it is the big picture that enables children to see their writing as a whole, rather than merely individual letters. Using straight-forward key concepts and ‘tactile’ visuals, children know what they’re aiming for and how to get there.
The (SMHP) is concept-driven, practical and easily embedded into the curriculum with minimal to no investment. Even better, the progress monitoring is fast and simple. SMHP can be implemented in a number of ways and works equally well as a full curriculum, therapeutic intervention, home program, RTI adjunct, collaborative model and center time activity. Teachers who are already swamped, note that the changes in legibility happen immediately and dramatically.
SMHP is a new way of teaching and remediating handwriting. It uses language from the existing literacy, social studies, science or even math lessons. Printing practice of words, phrases and sentences happens while actually learning the curricular content. Never before has skill acquisition, practice and carryover been so easy and fun. Most importantly, it works and has been proven…. because when it comes to neat printing…. Size Matters!
