Desjardins, A. (1980). Letter on Big 6 Fluency Development to Dr. Leslie Wiedenman. For those working with young children and students with fine motor skill deficits, Dr. Eric Haughton's identification of "the big 6" behavior elements (reach, point, touch, grasp, place, release) was a major breakthrough when combined with Precision Teaching methods. This letter is one of the only documents we have that describes methods for developing these skills, sent by long-time practitioner Annie Desjardins to a colleague who requested information. It is a poor scanned copy of a 25-year old document, but is invaluable and still sought out by many teachers and therapists.

This compilation of messages and letters was created by Jim Pollard in memory of Eric Haughton, co-founder with Ogden Lindsley of Precision Teaching, shortly after Eric passed away after a long battle with cancer.
