Most dysgraphia success stories in the press are of famous people who have been successful despite dysgraphia. Our students aren’t renowned. They are ordinary people who overcame or are in the process of overcoming dysgraphia symptoms like severe spelling and handwriting difficulties.
Writing – essential but complex
Writing is an integral part of a child’s education and is a lifetime-required skill. Writing is the usual medium through which students convey what they have learned to teachers. Adults also find writing a necessity they cannot avoid. Writing is an essential job-related skill. Regardless of your career or occupation, everyone has to communicate with writing.
Most people never consider the complexity and difficulty of the writing process. Yet, relative to all other academic activities, writing requires more basic skills than any other. Even during their earliest handwriting exercises, children must combine complex physical and cognitive processes to render letters precisely and fluidly.
As writing tasks become more complex, students must call on an increasingly wide range of skills to not only write legibly, logically, and in an organized way but also invoke rules of grammar and syntax. This combination of requirements makes writing the most complex and challenging use of language. For individuals with dysgraphia, writing can therefore be an uphill battle.
At its broadest definition, dysgraphia is a disorder of writing ability at any stage, including problems with letter formation/legibility, letter spacing, spelling, fine motor coordination, writing rate, grammar, and composition.
Dysgraphia cannot be treated with medication. Instead, specialized help is required to treat the disorder. Below are stories of five children who received specialized help and overcame their dysgraphia symptoms.
