Hello, world! I repair handwriting.

I used to have rotten handwriting, because of a whole bunch of innate neurological disabilities (which I still have, despite the fact that I now also have good handwriting.)

At age 24, I dug into the history and ergonomics of our handwriting on order to learn how to help myself,then others.

Today, I teach/re-teach handwriting, and help people become aware of its continuing importance today.

(What kind of handwriting do I teach? I teach and advocate a simplified, "back-to-basics" handwriting method based on my own research and experience in this area.)


Read on for some of what I've done with handwriting in my life so far — or CLICK HERE for a full, current resumé/CV.

I've provided handwriting help to individuals and groups since 1992. Most recently, my work has focused on mending the penmanship of physicians (permitting greater legibility at emergency-room speed), and on sharing my knowledge of handwriting instruction with parents, teachers/school-administrators, occupational therapists, remedial/rehabilitation specialists, and other educators. (For more information, and to arrange for services, reach me via e-mail at handwritingrepair@gmail.com, by phone at 518/482-6763, or via the Medical Education Speakers' Network which lists me as a speaker on handwriting in the medical workplace.)

Here follows a short list of some of my works on handwriting and how to improve it (published articles and more):

 

- "STAGE WRITE Handwriting Practice Paper" (available in 6 formats from Therapro) a six-stage series of handwriting paper that gets it right for writing! Students begin with clearly defined writing spaces and perceptual cues in Stage One - then, the perceptual cues fade in successive Stages as the student gains mastery. Stage Six helps the student make the final transition to conventional lined notebook paper. The high-quality paper erases easily, and the distinctive lines and spaces make success easy for every student. To order STAGE WRITE directly from Therapro, or just to learn more, click here.

- In addition to the above works, I created and hold (as "Karen S. Gladstone") US Patent 5,018,208, "Input Device for Signature Verification," which concerns an electronic signature-verification device that evaluates handwriting form, speed, and quality.

- In addition I will do custom handwritten  calligraphic service for special events such as addressing envelopes, place cards, etc. Prices provided on request.

These days, I keep myself busy putting together books and other materials/media to help people (young and grown) to learn handwriting and to improve their existing handwriting skills.

Credit must go to my loving husband, Andrew Haber, a retired lawyer and occasional web-site designer. He designed this web site for me. Without him, I might not have made it as far as I have done.


For some reason, people at times have asked my precise birthdate, birth-time, and birthplace: March 19, 1963 - 7:24 a.m., Brooklyn, New York, USA.

My parents named me "Karen Sue Gladstone" - I changed my name to "Kate" because I liked that name - I never thought of myself as a "Karen Sue." Also, far too many other people my age had the name "Karen."

<(In any case, people who marry lawyers should not have "sue" for a middle name.)


I have 2 sisters (Alisa Gladstone-Brown, M.D. and Jessica Gladstone) and a brother (Steven Gladstone).
