Our handwriting is a window to our personality, our self-image, just as the way we dress and present ourselves. We all have a view on how our handwriting appears to others and would sometimes like that image to be different!
Handwriting can also be seen as a means of expressing language, just like speech, and it also leaves a lasting trace. It is a physical way of expressing thoughts and ideas and a means of communicating with others.
Handwriting is a skill that can be mastered. This involves linguistic, cognitive, perceptual and motor components, all of which have to be coordinated into an integrated fashion.
