This program is making a difference in the lives of kids
“My son was a participant in your handwriting program. He had a horrible pencil grip that we had been trying to change for 2-3 years. His penmanship was also bad. But now, he is consistently gripping his pencil perfectly and his writing has greatly improved. I want to say thank you for helping him overcome his bad habits! Your handwriting program is worth every penny and I hope that you continue it so that other children can benefit as well!” – Melissa W., Coopersville parent
