Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia impacts a student’s handwriting and fine motor skills. Impaired ability to reproduce legible and automatic letter and numeral writing. Students with dysgraphia may also struggle with planning and organization.

Here are ways to support students with dysgraphia:

  • Provide students with graphic organizers, charts, or mind-mapping educational software for organizing their thoughts.
  • For young learners, use paper with raised lines for a sensory guide to help them stay within the lines.
  • Make an editing checklist for students to follow.
