Navigating Through the Writing Process with the Young Child
Featuring Miriam Jordan, MSEd, PCET
All children develop at their own pace, however when it comes to developmental milestones, there are key elements that establish a strong sense of motor control. Let’s take a deeper look at developing fine motor skills, potential challenges such as mirror writing and navigating this core skill in the life of the young child. These tools provided will be helpful for parents, educators and those who work with preschoolers to second grade.
