struggle with tiny handwriting?
Did you know small handwriting or micrographia is a symptom of Parkinson’s? The Let’s Combat Micrographia® workbooks are your solution to improved handwriting! Since 2014, The Art Cart has worked closely with people living with Parkinson’s to understand micrographia and developed research-based techniques that work to improve this symptom. The Let’s Combat Micrographia® Workbooks and Workshop series takes you back to the basics and covers important topics including but not limited to retraining your brain, posture, routine, writing, and hand exercises. The workbooks focus specifically on how to improve small handwriting while increasing confidence in the writing process. The workbooks and online virtual workshop series are supported by the National Institute of Health’s National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The second Edition Let’s Combat Micrographia® Workbook is available in English and Spanish. You can access them here. To read more about micrographia, click here.
