Letter Writing Campaign

Penmanship training needs to be brought back to schools for the reasons outlined in the posts on this blog. We are preparing some letter templates for you to use to write to your legislators. The specific movements taught in penmanship exercises help children to develop better impulse control and combat the bombardment of the right brain from video games and TV. 
Check back soon, or contact for copies of the templates now.

Cursive-the Phenomenon of Writing

50th Anniversary of the American Association of Handwriting Analysts - Special Event!
Join us at our special conference event to learn how cursive is phenomenal. It is the most complex of all movements since it involves both sides of the brain, nerve impulses, motor muscles, reflexes, eyesight, and memory. Every move of the pen holds characteristic dynamics of inner impulses which make them as unique and distinctive as a fingerprint. As a phenomenal brain exercise, cursive stimulates learning. Our mission is for required teaching of cursive in the U.S. Education program.
A pre-convention workshop will be held on July 18, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Introduction to Handwriting Analysis: A Primer" by Edda Manley for $45. Fifteen other speakers have spectacular presentations planned.
Contact Karen Whittemore at 248-477-3630 or for reservations or further information.
