What is Dysgraphia?
Dysgraphia is best defined as a neurodevelopmental disorder manifested by illegible and/or inefficient handwriting due to difficulty with letter formation. This difficulty is the result of deficits in graphomotor function (hand movements used for writing) and/or storing and retrieving orthographic codes (letterforms) (Berninger, 2015).
- Secondary consequences may include problems with spelling and written expression.
*Consultation and technical assistance are available to facilitate districts in setting up dysgraphia and dyscalculia processes.*
