The Resource Library

Your Students

... will benefit from a simple, structured approach that supports them with a transferable model for personal change and development.

You may decide to use the approach with:

  • all students

  • particular year groups

  • identified students within each year group

Home Practice

Some students like to work on handwriting in the privacy of their own home.

Often parents want to help but don't know how.

There's no doubt we achieve the best outcomes when we work together and are on the same page.

When you buy a school subscription, your enrolled students will be able to access The Resource Library at home. The bite-sized demonstration videos and simple worksheets make it easy to establish a positive, manageable consistent routine for independent or supported practice.

"I do really like your short sequences and instructions. They make it easy for me to remember how to guide my son." Parent

'The training we received from Nicky at Better Handwritten was superb. She listened to our needs and then tailored the training so that it was bespoke for our school. The content was easy to access and delivered in an engaging and insightful manner. Staff were hugely complimentary about the training and the fact they could immediately implement actions to support children with their handwriting development. So much added value!’
