The Write Stuff/Handwriting Without Tears-   The Write Stuff is a program that was developed by Kristi Nguyen (owner of OT-Kids) early in her career, when she was working as a school based therapist in Stamford, CT.  Often asked to work on handwriting skills with students that she felt were not developmental ready to learn how to write, Kristi designed a multi-sensory program to introduce letter formation and handwriting skills to young children with little hands, that were not yet ready to hold a pencil!

 

The Write Stuff grew into a homebased OT/Handwriting tutoring program where Kristi utilized the Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum as the foundation for teaching penmanship and handwriting skills to children while simultaneously addressing skills such as postural control, strength and motor coordination all of which are crucial to a child's success in the classroom.  Kristi emphasizes the importance of making handwriting fun and motivating to the child. Often times this means working on writing without ever touching a pencil or paper! The Write Stuff approach to handwriting is messy, creative and fun, fostering a child's interest, confidence and motivation to learn to write! Our handwriting sessions often do not even use pencil and paper, as we believe that children can develop good handwriting habits through exploration of "out side of the box" writing experiences.  Each summer we offer our Kickstart Kindergarten program which is a multi-sensory, hands on and exciting camp based introduction to handwriting for children that will be entering Kindergarten each fall. 

 

Handwriting   Without   Tears   is   an   innovative,  research   based curriculum   providing  developmentally appropriate,  multi-sensory  tools  and  strategies  for  teaching  successful  handwriting  skills  to  children  of all ages from pre-school through cursive writing and typing skills. Over a decade after starting The Write Stuff, Kristi and the staff of OT-Kids continue to use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum when working on handwriting intervention with our patients. We offer handwriting support to children in both individual sessions as well as small group setting.  Each summer we offer our Kickstart Kindergarten program which is a multi-sensory, hands on and exciting camp based introduction to handwriting for children that will be entering Kindergarten in the fall.
