Dysgraphia is a neurological condition that affects writing abilities and fine motor skills. This condition of a student or a child leads them to struggle in putting their thoughts into words on paper. We all know that many school assignments involve writing, and Dysgraphia can cause problems for students in meeting the school's curriculum. The estimated occurrence of children with Dysgraphia in some form is 4-20% of the population.
In this episode, I talk about what Dysgraphia is and how it impacts a child's ability to write effectively and efficiently. I also discuss the primary signs and symptoms of Dysgraphia and the significance of educating ourselves about it, as it is often misunderstood or misdiagnosed. Lastly, I shared the four types of Dysgraphia and what it looks like for children or adults.
