Working on handwriting is best done in short spurts - so a little at a time but often ( daily 10-15 minutes at least).  Tutoring is only beneficial if your child is supported and continues working on the days I do not see them.  The journey is sometimes a long one however my therapy services provide a child with a foundation of self belief and control of their own handwriting in a fun way.!


I provide my session/s during school hours at school or in your home on weekdays as well as Saturdays.


Saturday appointments are premium days so you may have to wait several weeks before your child can be seen.  I do advocate in school hours in the contextual environment of school.  This has the  benefit of direct school liaison benefitting your school with an additional resource as I am available to teachers face to face.
