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.*
