Log Handwriting Program (LHP)
The LHP was developed by an Australian occupational
therapist (Raynal, 1990) and sequentially teaches the components of legible handwriting. The child’s
writing line is colored brown to represent a wooden log, and letters of the alphabet areintroduced as animals living inside the log. Then memorable characters are used to prompt the development of correct letter alignment, size, and spacing.
