Editor’s Note: Late last week I saw that the New York Times opinion section ran a series of four articles debating the relevancy of cursive in this keyboarding age. Polled by the NYT to participate were a Professor of Education, a Handwriting Expert, an Archivist and (woo hoo), an Occupational Therapist!
While I wasn’t sure that the PediaStaff editorial staff would have the sway to have our opinions published by the Gray Lady, I thought it might be fun to see what some of our regular ‘OT Corner’ contributors might like to add to the debate.
Thank you so much to the three of you were able to take time out of their busy schedules to weigh in on this topic.

- Putting Cursive on the Chopping Block – by The Anonymous OT (OTR/L)
- Keeping Cursive Alive – by Anne Zachry, OTR/L – of Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips
What are YOUR thoughts? If any of you would like to add to the discussion, please comment, and/or blog. I would be thrilled to add more links to additional opinions to this post!
