Hemispheres Think Write is an ideal handwriting programme for schools; it is fun, exciting and engages children actively in their learning. The programme is developmentally appropriate for children in stage 1, and is inherently flexible to enable clear and easy differentiation for the different learning levels within a mainstream classroom.
The programme is easily administered, starting with as little as 15 minutes a day the children will soon learn the foundations for handwriting, enabling the delivery time to be reduced to 2-3 times per week to maintain the children's learning.
This programme offers interactive games to build a strong cognitive understanding of the concept of handwriting, it can be delivered as a whole class, in small groups and for those that need a little extra support on an individual basis.
For Learning Support
The Hemispheres Think Write programme works. The active integration of games, activities and play to help children build the necessary cognitive, motor and visual processing skills are an inherent part of this programme. This programme can be adapted and changed to build, to meet the individual needs for children with all levels of difficulty, from learning how to form the letters, to building cognitive structures to support retrieval and recall of the rules and visual processing, planning and organization skills for spatial placement.
What sets Hemispheres think write apart, is that is addresses the three component areas of handwriting: starting with the primary skill of cognitive understanding of the rules that govern letter formation, size and spatial position establishing a strong cognitive understanding before introducing letter formation and motor planning. This offers children the opportunity to build confidence in their understanding, whilst consolidating their fine motor skills, so they can bring both together at the right time to ensure success in using the right motor plan for letter formation.
