The Benefits of Cursive Writing

Derek Rhondenizer is the Vice Principal at Heritage Academy in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Last week he shared an informative article on The School of Dyslexia’s blog about the benefits of cursive.  You can read it here.

A few things I took away from the article were:

  • cursive writing improves dynamic interplay in the brain.
  • it improves fine motor skills.
  • cursive writing can help improve the memory of the written concept.
  • it engages a large part of the brain involving thinking.
  • typing or block print keep the repetitions of letters separate and less connected thought is involved.
  • cursive writing makes connections from the right side of the brain to the left and is helpful in building neural pathways.
  • it naturally develops sensory skills.
  • it can greatly affect memory – attention is given to the whole word because of how the connected letters form words.
