Just wondering if anyone has tried the writing eight exercises for dysgraphia?
i googled around about this technique and it seems pretty straightforward to actually carry out. It seems like the time commitment of everyday for one year is pretty extreme though, so i'm wondering if anyone has tried this and had success?
|Do the Writing Eight exercise with the child. Do the whole alphabet each day — monitor closely for best results. Continue this for the entire year. The Writing Eight exercise (as described in the Brain Integration Therapy Manual) transfers the process of writing from the left (thinking) hemisphere, to the right (automatic) hemisphere, making the writing process much easier. It also eliminates reversals in writing. Be consistent with this and you will see spectacular results in the ease of writing. Do as much of this exercise that you can in a 15 minute time spot. If that isn’t the whole alphabet each day, then continue where you left off the day before. After a while the whole alphabet will be able to be completed in 15 minutes.|
