The D’Nealian Approach

D'Nealian Handwriting focus on lowercase letters

The newly updated program gives students and educators all the benefits you've always expected from D'Nealian Handwriting. The continuous stroke for lowercase letters focuses on proper size, space, and slant, while easing the transition to cursive and cutting down on common reversals since there are few pencil lifts.
