D'nealian Handwriting is known as the original continuous stroke handwriting program. The D'nealian method aims to make the transition from manuscript to cursive easier by adding a slant to the manuscript print and more similarity in the letter strokes between manuscript and cursive, and with less flourishes in general. It is based on a few simple connecting strokes, or tails, that children then use to transition into cursive writing. Manuscript print letters are learned with tails and written at a slight slant, so the change to cursive is simple; all you need to do is connect the "tails".
