Drawn To Discover Program Core
Current research demonstrates that a decreasing amount of students have sufficient handwriting and fine motor skills necessary for success in school. Despite the clear connection between these skills and academic success, schools are spending less time teaching them. Indeed, teachers don’t feel adequately prepared to teach such skills.
Educational programs, such as Drawn To Discover, that develop visual literacy through fine motor control and creativity have demonstrated improved results for children both academically and behaviorally. When students consistently spend time developing and practicing these skills, teachers see rapid improvement in all academic areas both in the short-term and long-term.

“I can say that everyone is raving about the program and I am really excited to see the results. I believe all of the teachers will want to continue using the program when the “TLC” ends in Feb.”
“I think we are starting a revolution here in Poway, a handwriting revolution! We had our 2nd TLC class and the response was tremendous from all of the teachers! They were asking me when our district was going to purchase a site license for all of the schools!”
