Ideation, Representation, Handwriting Realization†
AbstractDespite the widespread use of electronic devices for activities strictly connected to writing, several studies have proved the importance of developing handwriting, using paper and pen. One study conducted by Cutler and Graham demonstrated that the development of handwriting is so important that it may impact the academic success of a child. Moreover, different studies conducted by Graham have underlined that it is very important to give children clear and correct rules about handwriting from their early developmental stages. Effective handwriting instruction does not require a large amount of time. To see considerable returns, it is enough to spend just a few minutes every day teaching handwriting. To develop this skill, teachers need to feel prepared. The paper will propose a short excursus of suggestions dealing with how handwriting could be enhanced, underlining the importance of developing this skill from the first years of schooling as a tool aimed at preventing other possible future difficulties in the development of the person.
