A Helping Hand for Handwriting

Liz Ramsay one of YES @ Richmond School's specialist TAs is using her skills to support a pupil who lives in India. Liz who has completed a range of effective handwriting projects within Richmond School and other local schools, was on hand to provide advice and support when Ramya an Indian Development Worker for IRDT visited North Yorkshire this summer.

The pupil in question is Boupathi (pictured) who attends Crakehall School which is in Mettupalayam in the Tamal Nadu region of India. Boupathi has cerebral palsy and has worked at his phsyio therapy exercises over the years. He is however now at the stage where he is increasingly frustrated with difficulties in writing. After discussing him with Liz, Ramya has gone back to India with lots of ideas and some special equipment to help him. Ramya will help him for around 10/15 minutes each day and monitor progress.

We look forward to finding out how he gets on.

Information about how Liz can support the handwriting of students in your school is available on our website in the Coordination Difficulties section.

Further Information about Friends of Mettupalayam can be found on their Facebook page.
