Our History

Handwriting is more than just a fine motor skill. A growing body of research shows that handwriting instruction and handwriting skill impact students' overall literacy development. The Handwriting Collaborative was formed to connect educators and parents with the training and resources necessary to provide research-based handwriting instruction to all learners.

Our Mission

In today's classrooms the emphasis on student achievement through written expression is at its highest. At The Handwriting Collaborative our mission is to provide consultation and professional development for best-practice instruction in the writing process and the transcription skills that ALL learners need for their literacy development.
