Left handed writing guide mat

We have produced a writing information sheet that can be used as a mat on the child's desk or table to remind them of the basics for easy left handed writing - paper angle, hand position and grip and letter formations.

Left handed writing guide

You can order this as an A3 size laminated plastic mat for delivery by post (420mm x 295mm (17.5 in x 11.75 in) at £4.95 plus delivery charge or as a download file for £2.95 that you can print for yourself in either A4 or A3 size depending on your printer.
