Our Services

The NHA provides the following services:

  • Practical handwriting information for parents and professionals in our publications
  • Produces an annual journal for our members to keep them informed on the latest research and books on handwriting, and writing equipment (Journal)
  • Publishes practical booklets and other materials on specific aspects of handwriting
  • Works with central and local government to improve standards of handwriting
  • Supports research into handwriting
  • Liaises with commercial enterprises to give guidance on the manufacture of writing equipment
