Abstract: The results of different neuropsychological studies and practical experience prove the existence of direct neurological connections between the handwriting quality, a skill strongly related to the advanced levels of writing and reading, and the neurological processes that are basic for phonological processing, which is considered to be related to the acquisition of reading.

Believing the claim that handwriting (especially cursive) is important in work with kids facing specific difficulties in learning (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia et.al), the author stresses the need for these findings to be considered in the creation and adaptation of techniques and methods for the treatment of dyslexia in the Macedonian language. In this course, suggestions are given for adaptation of the Macedonian alphabet cursive letters for the purpose of teaching the technique Rhythmic Writing. 

Key words: dyslexia, cursive, Macedonian, rhythmic writing, alphabet
