Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability that affects writing skills and can often be overlooked in schools. While it may not be as well-known as other learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia can significantly impact students' ability to express themselves through writing.
In this episode, I discuss the five accommodations for students with dysgraphia and how these can help students succeed in the classroom. Firstly, by asking what the objective is, educators can ensure that students with dysgraphia have equal access to education and are not hindered by their difficulties with writing. Planning ahead and proactively identifying students with dysgraphia in the classroom is crucial. This can involve reviewing their educational records and observing their writing skills during class activities. Additionally, creating a quality rubric that is clear, concise, and provides specific guidelines for evaluating the work of students with dysgraphia can help them understand expectations and standards. These accommodations collectively support students with dysgraphia in accessing education and showcasing their knowledge and skills to the best of their abilities.
Implement these accommodations to support students with dysgraphia and promote their success in the classroom!
