Dysgraphia

What is Dysgraphia?

        Dysgraphia is a neurological disorder characterized by writing disabilities. Specifically, the disorder causes a person's writing to be distorted or incorrect. In children, the disorder generally emerges when they are first introduced to writing. They make inappropriately sized and spaced letters, or write wrong or misspelled words, despite thorough instruction.  (Source: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 2018)
