Why PreCursive?

PreCursive Fonts

Precursive addresses some of the fundamental problems associated with ball-and-stick manuscript writing:

the motor skills and visual skills needed to draw the letters
the difficulty children have in moving from manuscript to cursive in the middle grades.

The program is based on research that indicates ovals and slanted lines are easier for children to form than round circles and straight lines.

Letter size is reduced, and uppercase and lowercase letters are designed to be as similar as possible.

Most letters are formed using a single continuous stroke making the transition to cursive writing very easy. The single stroke formation also helps minimize reversal problems.
