When was it the last time that we wrote on paper? Today from smart phones to laptops, the tech-dependent
society has put keyboards at the tips of our fingers. We have simply forgotten how to write. Handwriting has immense benefits.
Handwriting proficiency helps the brain to develop. It inspires confidence. The more we practise handwriting the stronger our motor
pathways become, until the skill becomes automatic. Handwriting engages different brain circuits which keyboarding does not. The contact,
direction and pressure of your handwriting sends the brain a message and the repetitive process of handwriting integrates the motor
pathways into the brain. When it becomes automatic, there is almost a groove in the pathways. The more we write, the more pathways are
laid down. But if we write them poorly, we are getting a faulty pathway, so we need to go back and correct it.
