Here’s how parents and teachers can identify signs of dysgraphia
Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects writing abilities. It means people with dysgraphia find it difficult to spell correctly, have poor handwriting and trouble expressing their thoughts on paper.
A study says that children with learning disabilities can face a hard time to stay updated with the school requirements, syllabus information and also home-schooling lessons.
Here are some ways parents and teachers can look for signs of dysgraphia in such children.
If your child takes extra time to complete his written assignments.
If your child finds it a problem to hold a pencil or pen to write.
If the child has problems cutting with scissors and is not able to tie shoes.
If your child has difficulty in organising his or her thoughts and putting them in writing.
If your child’s handwriting is illegible and he or she forms letters or words poorly.
However, there are solutions to help children with dysgraphia.
Parents and teachers can ask dysgraphic students to shorten their written assignments, use simple words or phrases, draw pictures or orally tell their thoughts to organise their thoughts before writing.
