What is Dysgraphia?

Dysgraphia is derived from two Greek words: Dys, which means “impaired,” and Graphia, which means “letter type by hand.” Dysgraphia is a term that refers to difficulties with letter writing. Despite possessing a regular IQ, it is a challenge in writing clearly. These individuals also struggle to convert incoming visual input into fine motor activity.

As a result, their handwriting is always clumsy and difficult to read. Students with this issue have stated that they have difficulty describing themselves in writing. This has been linked or a partial or utter failure to remember how to write a certain symbol, number, or alphabet in certain situations. Dysgraphia is readily detectable during the early stages of learning and development and should be treated as soon as possible.
