Hand Writing and Brain Development
With the advent of technology, we have all been using computers more and more and handwriting less and less.
Apart from the fact that handwriting is very important when technology fails or cannot do the task at hand, there is a significant reason why children should still be taught how to write cursively, i.e. “joined-up”.
The benefit of cursive writing has been examined in numerous studies and has been shown to improve brain development, significantly for critical thinking, language and working memory.
We also offer short courses in touch typing
