What is Dysgraphia?
Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects writing by hand. Writing involves a complex set of motor and information processing skills, and in reality is more complicated than it looks!
Those with dysgraphia could have difficulty with handwriting, spelling, organizing letters, numbers and words on a line or page, putting thoughts on paper, and speed of writing.
Research has shown that those with Dysgraphia have an impairment in the ability to store written words in working memory while analyzing them, or an impairment in the ability to create permanent memory of written words linked to their pronunciation and meaning. They could also have impairment in the ability to plan sequential finger movements such as touching the thumb to fingers on the same hand
