Supporting Students With Dysgraphia

While there’s not a lot of research on dysgraphia yet, there are a few signs you should look out for, and some evidence-based tactics to help kids with this writing condition.

November 15, 2019

Compared to other learning disabilities like ADHD and dyslexia, dysgraphia is not well understood. But we do know that for children who have dysgraphia, it can be a serious obstacle to academic success—and the research suggests there are tactics you can adopt to help kids with the condition express themselves.

We looked at several sources for this video, including the website, "What Is Dysgraphia?" by the National Center for Learning Disabilities, a 2007 study titled "Dysgraphia: How It Affects A Student’s Performance and What Can Be Done About It" by Alyssa L. Crouch and Jennifer J. Jakubecy, and 2015 research from Peter Chung and Dilip R. Patel published in the International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health.
