Handwriting Without Tears

Handwriting Without Tears aims to make legible and fluent handwriting a skill that students can master easily. A wonderful complement to Occupational Therapy, the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum provides a hands-on approach using visual, tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic activities.

“Juli's assertive approach to challenge Ty, born with Spina Bifida L5/S1, puts him on a path to mobility and independence, giving us hope for Ty's future.  She is an integral component to Team Titus.  I love medical professionals like Juli who truly care and love the work they do.”
