About The Happy Handwriter

We provide the knowledge and tools to empower you to help your child master fine motor and handwriting challenges. With resources developed by a highly experienced occupational therapist, have fun together as your child learns and develops. Invest | Implement | Improve

Designed, published and sourced by occupational therapist, Bunty McDougall, The Happy Handwriter’s range ensures each aspect of fine motor skills, pre-handwriting and handwriting has been carefully put in place to ensure your child benefits from the best foundations for handwriting – a skill that will accompany them for the rest of their lives.

The Happy Handwriter is a complete multi-sensory graded system that addresses the foundations for both fine motor skills and handwriting. But not only are they addressed, each aspect is researched based and carefully graded to build from one stage to the next.

The handwriting programme is based on solid sensory and motor principles that can be applied across the South African context to every school going child in the early grades. The foundational fine motor skills that are lacking in our "techno" pre-schoolers are specifically targeted through to the development of pencil control. This may be done at school, at home, or through the Muscle Mania Classroom based fine motor and pre-handwriting programmes. The various aspects of the letter formation programme offer the teacher the opportunity to maximise the effectiveness of the time available for the teaching of handwriting. Once the fine motor skills and foundational strokes are in place, letters and numbers, accompanied by formation songs, are built and then go on to provide the opportunity for multiple repetition in the correct formation patterns.

The Happy Handwriter® is continuing to publish new and innovative ways to enable us to teach handwriting smarter, which is critical in the already jam-packed curriculum that our teachers have to juggle to incorporate into the school day.
