My work as a school-based occupational therapist is consistently interesting and deeply satisfying. As a teacher-author, I am gratified to offer unique products that apply a host of differentiated solutions for regular and special education students.
Print Path’s handwriting products uniquely support teachers in providing grade appropriate explicit instruction and also help teachers to guide students through the stages of acquiring vital handwriting automaticity skills. My self-regulation curriculum, Move Work Breathe, includes a school-wide license so that one effective system can be implemented with ease and fidelity. Check out my blog! http://printpath.org/

All children can learn to print legibly and efficiently. To meet CCSS and to be career and college ready, children must gain legible and automatic printing skills. Children acquire these transcription skills during the critical years of 4k – 2nd grade. The handwriting instruction and experiences that you offer will make the difference between a reluctant writer and one from whom persuasive, expository, and creative writing flows easily from the pen.
