ACHIEVE NEAT HANDWRITING – 30 SIMPLE STEPS
10-12 LESSONS TO COMPLETE
Group lessons take place in Finchley, Golders Green, Fulham or home visits may be arranged. (For locations click here.) There are usually around 2 to 4 children in a group and the lessons are highly structured. As pupils progress through the Magic Link workbook, their cursive writing becomes noticeably neater and tidier, providing them with an essential skill, which will prove beneficial throughout their life.
Sessions involve direct work, as well as demonstrations on follow-up exercises at home. Homework, 5-10 minutes per day, is set as regular practise is important in speeding up and achieving goals. Usually, pupils require around 10-12 lessons to complete the programme. There may be slight variations depending on the severity of the handwriting and the age of the child.
45 MINUTE SESSIONS
STORY WRITING, SPEED AND SPELLING IS REINFORCED
Children are taught in small groups and these highly intensive sessions last for 45 minutes. These groups lessons are an excellent, tried and tested way of motivating children to work together to gain maximum confidence in their handwriting and or spelling skills.
Parents are encouraged to reinforce exercises at home in order to achieve maximum potential as quickly as possible. Story writing strategies and consolidation exercises are given once the pupil has reached the final step 30. This will reinforce handwriting skills and focus on speed, spelling, presentation and transfer into school work.
Initial Consultation for Handwriting - In a Group
Subsequent Handwriting Group Lessons
During the initial session, a handwriting sample will be taken and the pupil will be provided with the first Magic Link workbook and an ergonomic triangular pencil. Then the pupil will then begin to learn the first steps in the Magic Link Handwriting Programme. The second and third books are included as the student progresses through the programme.
At the end of this session, time is allocated to parents or carers for the Magic Link programme and homework to be explained. This first session lasts 45 minutes and includes the first Magic Link workbook, a Magic Link pencil and a Magic Link bag. Homework consists of 5 -10 minutes, once or twice, per day.
The consultation fee applies to all pupils who have not attended classes for 6 months or more and for children who are on pupil premium, an invoice will be sent directly to their school, subject to authorisation.
