John Pilot Study

 

"John is in a low ability group for most subjects. He displays poor pencil control and he is also left handed. When writing, both myself and the teaching assistant have been able to help John by referring back to the way we used our Doodle Sticks to form different shapes, be they curved or straight.

John was able to demonstrate by copying the shape in the air with his finger.

John has also developed more confidence and has begun to take part more in class discussions."
