It's Safe To Say I Can Help!
I’m Sheilagh, a children’s Occupational Therapist and handwriting expert working in schools across the UK every week. And I know a LOT about writing.
I have published books on handwriting. One of these is a best seller. The National Handwriting Association said this book was ‘fantastic’.
I believe writing shouldn’t be difficult to learn. It’s a skill that should have no boundaries. I can teach you the techniques. I will make learning it fun and easy to do.
When we can write we can inspire others with our thoughts. More about me
Let me show you how!

What kids, parents and teachers say...
Sheilagh has the warmest and easiest of styles both for the parent and child. Ollie instantly felt at ease. The assessment went very quickly for him as Sheilagh engaged him and made it fun. Sheilagh quickly built a rapport with Ollie and we would recommend her in a flash!’
My daughter has gained self confidence and enjoyment of writing rather than approaching it with dread and dismissing all her handwriting as ‘rubbish’. She is now able to recognise areas of neatness and skill which has built on her self esteem.
I was at your talk at the TES SEN show and of all the seminars (and I went to eight) yours was the best in terms of content and presentation. Keep up the wonderful enthusiasm for such an important part of a child's education that causes so much stress for many of our children.
As a parent of a child struggling with handwriting, we worked through this guide together at home while on a waiting list for OT. We found it a very easy to follow systematic approach which allowed us to identify what his issues are and gave us exercises and strategies to help us support him. The exercises are short and fun, so engaging for children.
You’ve already helped me. You’ve created the first writing sheets I can actually get my son to complete!
Really enjoyed listening to a different OT perspective - inspirational & informative!
I love handwriting and that is because of you.
