Pupils will discover how to achieve neat, legible, joined-up, cursive handwriting, which can be used in schools as well as in everyday life situations. They will be taught accurate formation of capital letters, punctuation and numbers. Each worksheet is written in the unique Magic Link font which enables clear, cursive, handwriting.

On the final step, there are consolidation exercises to build up speed as well as exercises to incorporate writing in sentences, story writing, diaries and complex vocabulary. For primary school children, there is a certificate of achievement to win on successful completion of the programme. Included after every step is a short and fun cartoon animation, to reinforce handwriting skills and motivate younger children.
The course is designed to run online on PCs, laptops, iPads, iPhones, smartphones and tablets, through an internet browser. Presented by Lee Dein, the creator of the programme, a speech therapist and dyslexia teacher , who has over 30 years of teaching experience.
