How sad, "They will figure it out in about 20 years after research shows what types of deficits people have developed without using handwriting."
And then, I often wonder about graphology. It seems to rely principally on the current handwriting methods taught in most schools, and perhaps on lack of instruction as to how to write.
I have successfully taught handwriting with the italic mode for many years. Included in that instruction is:
1) Slant, which depends on posture and paper placement
2) Pressure which relates to a good, relaxed pen hold
3) Crossbars on 't'; For legibility italic instruction usually controls the crossbar by connecting to many letters, rather than joining from the baseline to a following letter and then going back to cross 't.'
Margins are another issue. Both left and right margins should be adequate and not excessive.
Needed: Help for teachers who are seldom prepared to teach handwriting.
