Practice letter formation using multi-sensory approaches, such as tracing letters in sand or shaving cream, to engage multiple senses and reinforce muscle memory.
Break down tasks into smaller steps to make them more manageable for your child. Focus on one skill at a time, whether it is letter formation, legibility, writing on the line, or sentence generation.
Provide a comfortable and supportive writing environment with a proper-sized desk, chair, and good lighting to promote correct posture and reduce strain during writing tasks.
Write on a vertical service, like a mirror, glass door, or wall, to help develop shoulder strength.
