Smiles Create Moves and Creativity works on Handwriting

Meet Saba M. Shahid, President of Creative Neurology® (formerly The Art Cart) developer of “Smile Through Art®” and “Let’s Combat Micrographia®”. Both programs, based on the loss of fine motor control, rigidity and tremors, help PWP’s improve their handwriting and their creativity. Saba, will explain Micrographia and lead us through some of the exercises that work to redevelop, retrain, and strengthen our brain to bring back the smiles and keep our handwriting fluid. Bring a piece of paper and a pen or pencil to this meeting.
