Why is handwriting so important?

The brain engages differently when we write something by hand as opposed to typing it on a keyboard or by touching a screen. Studies show that writing improves memory and we recall information better when we write it.

Learning the alphabet by interacting with each letter in many different ways (see, hear, make) helps children imprint and retain the letters and the letter sounds for easier recall when learning to read. In this process children are using many different sensory channels to process and retain information about letters and numerals.

Being able to write effortlessly enables the mind to focus more fully on a topic. Struggling with handwriting takes valuable brain energy away from any writing task, but when that skill is mastered, it makes all the difference. Skilled, fluid handwriting is an asset to learning.
