Handwriting support

Hello Lake Harriet Parents:

My name is Cindy Horgan and I'm leading a new progam at Lake Harriet Lower Campus this year called Handwriting Support.  This program is designed to support kindergarten through 3rd grade teachers and students with core foundations for successful handwriting.  I'm a Lake Harriet mom to 3 girls and I've been a pediatric occupational therapist for 15 years.   My role this year does not replace the incredible work by our school OT.  My focus is to support teachers and all Lake Harriet students in the development of handwriting.

The documents below discuss the importance of having a good grip on your writing instrument and the importance of starting at the top when making letters. 

If you have any questions about pencil grips, Start at the Top, or the focus of this new program please contact me at cmhorgan@mac.com.

It’s a privilege to have this opportunity to work with all your students!

Thank you,

Cindy Horgan
