About Handwriting For Heroes: Learn To Write With Your

Product Description By targeting adults, this book preserves the dignity of those who must "re-learn" the basics of handwriting by providing an alternative to children's workbooks. All tasks are oriented to the adult learner. Cursive writing is easier than printing from motor and perceptual standpoints. Learning cursive writing also diminishes the challenge of having even spaces between printed letters. However,many have requested that the 3rd edition include instructions and visual demonstrations on PRINT writing. We have answered your request! Handwriting for Heroes is a task-oriented workbook that approaches learning to write with your previously non-dominant hand through meaningful repetitions of purposeful writing tasks. Handwriting for Heroes captures the extra-ordinary learning process of a very ordinary task: handwriting. The methods of instruction are based on motor learning principles and the dynamic process of skill acquisition. This is a first-of-its-kind workbook designed for adult populations who sustain injuries to their dominant hands that permanently impair dexterity functions. Learning to write with the previously non-dominant hand can be a rewarding accomplishment along the recovery path; it is an accomplishment that leads to improved self-esteem, increased opportunities for hobbies and work occupations, and one more illustration of the adult s ability to overcome adversity. Occupational Therapists Acclaim for the Handwriting for Heroes Method "I used Handwriting for Heroes with all of my patients, some had lost hand function from amputation, brachial plexus injuries, stroke, or extensive soft tissue trauma to the dominant hand. All of my patients benefited and enjoyed the workbook and how it helped them return to handwriting tasks." Stephanie E. Daugherty, MS, OTR/L, CHT, Army Lt. Col. (Ret.) "This workbook is extremely practical and functional! It is an essential tool in hand dominance retraining for the upper limb amputee." Oren S. Ganz, MOT, OTR/L "Handwriting for Heroes is more than a workbook! It s an investment into the future performance of my patients who need to return to occupations that demand handwriting. My patients enjoy the challenge and the success of the program!" -Kristi A.

Occupational Therapists, Prosthetics and Orthotics professionals, and those recovering from amputation, severe physical injury, or stroke can all benefit from the information and exercises contained in this book. Authors Kathleen E. Yancosek and Kristin Gulick deliver tried and true methods from week one through week six on accomplishing this goal and even include a certificate of completion at the conclusion. --Vicki Landes, Reader Views The authors have written a very exceptional workbook to help those individuals with dominant-hand problems regain their writing skills. I believe as the authors do, it is important that individuals utilizing this workbook experience positive outcomes. Each chapter is built off the previous one. If a person doesn t understand something, or needs additional help, it is suggested that they go to the website and speak to a therapist. I found the exercises and lessons interesting, easy to understand and use. There are many people who cannot afford therapy for extended periods of time or are embarrassed about the limited use of their dominant hand. This excellent workbook, Handwriting for Heroes, by Yancosek and Gulick, is for them. --Carol Hoyer, PhD, for Reader Views Developed by two experienced Occupational and Hand Therapists to help you learn to write with your non-dominant hand, Handwriting for Heroes is an encouraging but no-nonsense program for those who are serious about switching dominant sides.
