"I couldn’t have met Sue Smits at a better time. I am a fully qualified primary school teacher. The class I teach are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class. Sue has taught me how to identify handwriting problems, and most importantly, how to rectify these. Sue has taught me how to help children to improve their writing and how to fix the root cause of any problem involved with putting pen (or pencil) to paper. I think this is amazing. So many handwriting specialists focus on the last part and not the root"Helen David
