To help children struggling to learn legible handwriting, the town of Gurgaon, just south of India’s national capital, New Delhi, has created handwriting coaching centers, of which an increasing number of parents are taking advantage.
“Attendance at our handwriting improvement classes has picked up really well now having seen a 60-70% increase in demand for these courses in the past two years,” said Rita Ganjoo, coordinator of Sushant Lok-based Ascent Abacus & Brain Gym.
As in many other modern countries, both parents in Gurgaon work and find they have little time left at the end of the day to spend helping their children at home with such things as improving handwriting.
“Parents in Gurgaon are happy to have handwriting coaching centers available to help their kids,” said Palam Vihar Anita who recently took a franchise of Ascent Abacus & Brain Gym. “Demand for classes at my coaching center is almost overwhelming.”
Handwriting coaches say they have different models of instruction to suit the needs of different students. The course duration may vary from student to student according to the extent of improvement and the child’s learning ability, but generally lasts about 21 days.
As children are requiring more instruction in handwriting that they are no longer receiving in schools, learning handwriting needs to be made as easy as possible. My ergonomic pen was designed to help children learn to write without putting undue stress on developing muscles as they learn fine motor skills.
In addition, due to its ergonomic design, the UGLee Pen is the best pen for keeping keeping strain off the tendons so that there will be no inflammation or swelling in that surrounding area. The result is writing comfort with no pain and for the youngest of kids learning to write, this can help avoid frustration associated with gripping the pen too hard.
