How much would you pay to send your child to a summer handwriting camp?

The camp would be one hour a week with no more than 6 kids in a class and would run for 6 weeks. It would be run by a teacher and Occupational Therapist who both specialize in prewriting and writing skills. Parents would also receive training to help their children with simple homework assignments.
Wow…I must have really worded that wrong. I am not a lazy mother that doesn’t want to spend time with my child. I am a professional who works in schools with children who struggle with handwriting. Some children don’t qualify for services in the schools but still struggle just the same. Some special needs students could use the extra help in the summer as well. This would be an opportunity for extra tutoring by trained professionals.

    Nothing, you should teach you kid how to type, it’ll come in handy later on.

    Zero dollars. I don’t think you should waste your money on a handwriting camp. Why not try to help your child yourself? Make fun games out of it or look online for handwriting practice tools. I see no need for a camp!

    NOthing! I would sit down with my child, not send them away! I would be with that child every day and practice for a half an hour… my mom used to do this with me- she bought me writing paper, and we’d write words, letters of the alphabet, etc. Trust me, you get more out of teaching your child how to write then sending them away! I sorry, but I think that’s a little ridiculous when I would do it myself!

    Unless the child had special needs, I would teach him/her myself.

    It depends on how old your child is and if he/she is really struggling with handwriting…

    If you can’t afford a class, go to an educational book store and find workbooks that are age appropriate. YOU work with them an hour a day for 6 weeks and give rewards for a job well done. Quality time for you and your child is priceless!

    Are you asking as a person who is looking to set this up? I think it is a good idea, I wouldn’t know where to begin if I had a child with a special need and I think that ANY service that would help children, and their parents, with learning how to work with those needs and help them succeed is great! As far asthe amount I would be willing to spend??? I don’t know what a fair cost would be. Maybe try figuring what you think it would cost per hour for YOU to run the program and go from there. Are you asking for people in those specialties to volunteer? If not, what do you plan to pay them? Are you renting a space somewhere to hold these classes? If so, what are you planning to spend on that space? Just some things to think about. 🙂 I know I didn’t name a price but I hope I helped!! I personally would pay a lot to ensure the success of my child; not that I think that you should charge thousands of dollars… 😉

    By the way, I don’t see anything that makes you sound lazy, I think you sound like a concerned parent. Sorry others made you feel that way!! 🙂
