Reading Resources + Handwriting Help

I’ve been asked recently what our favorite resources are for strengthening little hands and helping kids to read or write. Our children with autism and dyslexia have enjoyed these tools and we’ve seen great improvement! If your child struggles with reading, handwriting, story telling, or fine motor skills…. give some of these a try. Some of these are also great to pass around during story time to keep hands busy. We keep them in a bin and bring them out only during school hours so they feel extra special. I’ve linked the following through amazon but sometimes you can find them cheaper at Christian Book Store when they run sales.
