RediSpace

This patented legibility paper was designed and tested by occupational therapists who specialize in handwriting. RediSpace® helps students write more neatly by using innovative cues for proper spacing between letters and words, correct letter size, and appropriate alignment of letters on the lines. Teachers LOVE RediSpace® because they can read their student’s handwriting and fewer errors occur in math due to number misalignment. Children at the Transitional stage have mastered letter formation and alignment on primary paper. They are now ready to write sentences and paragraphs on notebook paper; however, their visual motor integration skills directly related to spacing between letters and words is often not yet developed. Therefore, children at this stage demonstrate inconsistent spacing and have difficulty adhering to margins. The Redispace® Notebook helps students transition from primary paper to wide ruled notebook paper.
