My son did not develop his mom or dad's fine handwriting. I believe Asperger Syndrome has a lot to do with that. Growing up I always liked writing and rewriting things just to get that perfect look. I loved how I could try out different writing styles and mine changed as each year passed by. I went through phases where I would write small, very skinny, thick, then BIG bubble letters, ect. Yeah you could say my life was boring. My hubby's favorite as a kid was slant print because it looks close to italics. My son on the other hand is not a fan of writing unless it's freestyle (his way). Since he began learning how to write he often says he hates handwriting.
Peterson Directed Handwriting has been around since 1908. They have been in the business of helping to teach kids to write their letters the "Write Way". They have a writing program for children in PreK-8th grades. Their programs teach vertical print, slanted print, and cursive handwriting. The little ones can also learn to write their numerals.
To me although Peterson Directed Handwriting has a program selection for homeschoolers, it still seems more geared toward a teacher in a school classroom setting rather than for a parent who homeschools. It may help with kids that have special needs but I wouldn't say that is the norm because in our case my son complained about his fingers or shoulder hurting, and was frustrated at times. I think this program will work just fine for most NT kids. As for us we will have to slowly take our time with until my special needs son can actually get it.
