Preventing Academic Failure (PAF) Handwriting Program for Print


The Preventing Academic Failure (PAF) Handwriting Program can be used in conjunction with the PAF curriculum or independently as a classroom penmanship program. The techniques were designed to accommodate all students including those with graphomotor weaknesses and are derived from the latest research on how children learn to write. Four workbooks are available (print, numerals, cursive right-handed and cursive left-handed), each accompanied by a detailed instruction book.

The Handwriting Program for Print workbook provides large models for tracing that allow students to use arm muscles to learn letters. Small models are provided on 1 1/2-inch lined practice paper to facilitate the transition to regular writing paper.

Additional information about the PAF program, including a schedule of workshops and courses, is available at
