I am incredibly proud of D this evening and I wanted to share why.
Regular readers of my posts will know that, although she is an absolute whizz with crafting, also anything that involves hand-to-eye co-ordination and her ipad, she finds handwriting extremely challenging.
I have always felt that D may have dyspraxia, she displays (I feel) many of the symptoms but we have a school OT who refuses to consider it. For this reason, I don’t “push” handwriting at home and any notes/cards she produces are a fantastic surprise and a bonus.
They have DIY writing lessons at school, where words are put on to a board relating to a recent lesson or something the children have done that day and the task is to formulate and write down sentences in their books.
Yesterday was a busy day for D with some inter-house football and their DIY writing focused on that event.
This is an example of D’s handwriting 6 months ago:
And this is yesterday’s, she normally writes one or two sentences but totally excelled it here. Punctuation and all!
According to her TA, she is very close to moving up to the next writing level, which is amazing.
Now it just needs to stop raining…
