Callirobics is a handwriting program that does not teach penmanship in the traditional sense. Instead, it teaches simple, repetitive writing patterns of straight and curved lines which are set to music. These handwriting exercises have been developed to help train the eye and the hand develop the basic elements of writing and a focus on details.
The company explains that children and adults who have problems writing letters are often able to draw shapes successfully. The shapes in the program train the student in the same basic movements of penmanship as more traditional programs, but without the stress of practicing letters. The addition of music helps develop flow and rhythm in writing and can be helpful for those students needing a multi-sensory approach.
Each exercise takes about two minutes and it is recommended that the student repeat the same exercise for one week. The program can be used to develop fine motor skills and fluidity in writing and can be used in such diverse areas as speech pathology, occupational therapy, and to help with dyspraxia and other challenges.
Programs are available for every age group; from beginner to adult.
