About Handwriting Solutions

We are so happy you have chosen us to be a part of your child's learning journey.  We are on a mission to help children become capable and confident in expressing their thoughts in writing.  Our vision is to be your go-to resource for when learning is hard.  Whether you are a parent or teacher, we want you to feel empowered and knowledgeable in helping your students as lifelong writers. 

Our founder, Kelli Fetter will be alongside you on this journey.  As a parent, she understands the struggles of handwriting firsthand as her daughter is diagnosed with both dyslexia and dysgraphia.  Kelli is a Certified Handwriting Specialist and has practiced occupational therapy for 10+ years.  She has experience in pediatrics as well as specific training in learning disorders as well as curriculums such as Handwriting Without Tears, Size Matters Program, & Because Neatness Matters.

Handwriting Solutions is a resource for families who need handwriting support. 

We help children of all ages, from pre-writing to print to cursive and keyboarding, both virtually or in-person. 

> The first step will be completing the Handwriting Assessment Report.  This report provides so much value in determining the underlying barriers impacting your student's writing.  The assessment includes a parent/caregiver interview and teacher consultation as well as observations of handwriting samples and a one-on-one formal assessment with your child.  ​

> Following the assessment, handwriting strengths and areas needing improvement will be noted and discussed with the parent/teacher and a full Handwriting Report with recommendations will be provided. 

> If tutoring sessions are recommended, Handwriting Solutions would provide all materials needed.  If you are doing virtual sessions, you will need a computer/iPad, internet, and access to a printer. 

> Tutoring Sessions are purchased as a bundle of 10 sessions, with sessions typically occurring 1-2x per week.  Scheduling can be adjusted depending on your needs.  Each session is 45 minutes in length, with daily practice of 5-10 minutes at home provided and strongly encouraged.
