Take for granted the fact that learning boosts brain organization , the second part examines the variables that play a crucial role and have an influence not only on learning but on cerebral development, too. The third part offers an experimental exercise regarding writing. Signature appears as a simple procedure and can be used as a great predictor of prewriting development. It is greatly contigent on age and (pre)school experience and can be used as a vital tool for evaluating learning disabled children who face writing difficulties.
