What is Dysgraphia?

You probably hear a lot about learning and attention issues like Dyslexia and ADHD but chances are you don’t hear much about dysgraphia.

The condition is described as follows:

''Dysgraphia is a neurological condition that impairs writing and memory processing. It belongs to the same family of learning differences as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.

''The diagnosis of dysgraphia is difficult to make: many people have handwriting difficulties. Diagnosis has to be via an educational psychologist or a SpLD assessor in the UK. Because it is a rare condition, it is sometimes hard to find a person who feels confident in their skills in assessing people with this condition.''

If your child has trouble expressing themselves in writing, you may want to learn more about this condition.
