The purpose of the study was to determine if first grade students could gain control of the handwriting skill with greater perfection of letter formation through the simplified method devised by the investigator than through
a combination of commercial handwriting programs used by the control group. Participating in the program were forty-eight first-grade students from a rural school in New Mexico. No significant difference resulted between the experimental handwriting program emphasizing visual perception and the control handwriting program with little emphasis on visual perception.
