Small handwriting also known micrographia is a symptom commonly found in people living with Parkinson's disease. Micrographia is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease and is referred to as a prodromal symptombecause it is a symptom that indicates the start of a disease. Although micrographia often appears before any other symptoms are noticed, it is one of the last symptoms many living with Parkinson’s disease learn of.
Our Let’s Combat Micrographia Workshops and Workbooks focus specifically on how to improve small handwriting while increasing confidence in the process of writing. Very limited information on micrographia is readily available to the public. Since 2014, we have worked closely with people living with PD to understand micrographia and have developed techniques that work to improve this symptom.
An interactive workbook designed to help improve the small handwriting symptom found in those living with Parkinson's Disease. On-going research studies, contact us if you would like to get involved! This workbook is available on our website, on Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
