Writing skills are integral to communication because they allow you to clearly and quickly communicate your message in written form. However, for individuals with motor dysgraphia, writing can be a challenging and frustrating experience, and it can significantly impact a person's ability to express themselves in writing.
In this episode, I discuss the different signs and symptoms of motor dysgraphia, such as difficulties in various aspects of writing, like letter formation, letter placement, and spacing. They may also need help controlling the pencil or pen, resulting in sloppy or illegible handwriting. Writing letters from the bottom up instead of the top down and using too many strokes or the wrong stroke order can also be expected for those with motor dysgraphia. But with proper support, individuals with motor dysgraphia can overcome these challenges and develop effective writing strategies.
