The Freund Long Hand Writing Kit is a tactile script letter guide designed to teach cursive writing to individuals who are blind or have low vision. The main purpose of this kit is to teach students how to write their signature. Some of the concepts that are introduced are: how to hold a pen, pencil or crayon; the importance of good posture; left to right direction of handwriting; baseline and upper and lower areas where letters are formed; basic handwriting strokes; how letters are connected; and basic punctuation smbols. The kit consist of: a manual in both print and braille, which includes many raised line examples of letters and letter shapes; a workbook containing incised shapes and letters for tracing with a pencil eraser; a tactile marking mat, which is a plastic screen-patterned writing surface to be used with a crayon for creating tactile markings; and a pad of special soft paper with embossed lines designed to fit over the writing surface. OPTIONS: Paper and Tactile Marking Mat are also sold separately.
