Writing is essential in every person's life, as it is a complex task vital for our learning, and it is usually acquired in the early years of life. Becoming a strong writer takes time and needs to be taught explicitly. However, dysgraphia, a learning disorder in written expression, can present with different symptoms at different developmental stages.
In this episode, I discuss the signs and symptoms of linguistic dysgraphia in every developmental stage of a person, as it may vary at every stage. For grades K to two, a child may have trouble labeling pictures with a few words, or they will write sentences that are hard to understand. For grades three to five, they will need help with organization and content for different forms of writing, while middle schoolers might struggle with minor errors. However, it's important to note that dysgraphia is not related to intelligence, and individuals with dysgraphia may have strengths in other areas, such as verbal communication or problem-solving.
Listen to today's episode to learn more about the signs and symptoms of linguistic dysgraphia!
