How Handwriting Without Tears® Aligns to the Science of Reading

Handwriting is one of the foundational skills that leads students toward automatic word recognition.
It falls in the bottom, skills portion of Scarborough’s rope. As students form letters, they are solidifying the alphabetic principle. They need to be able to retrieve the symbol for the sound automatically, so as students practice in Handwriting Without Tears (HWT), they are learning to transfer that knowledge.
