Currently there are two full scale research projects being conducted on The TV Teacher handwriting programs:
1) Bloomsburg University has just completed both their pilot study as well as a full research project which includes data on four Kindergarten classrooms.We expect their reviews to be available in 2012.
If you are a therapist or educator and are interested in conducting a research project using our programs, please read the proposal below, and contact us if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
