How to help students with dysgraphia in the classroom
Read&Write’s discrete toolbar lets students with dysgraphia choose what they need, when they need it. This removes barriers in the classroom and means students with dysgraphia can let their strengths shine.
What is dysgraphia?
Dysgraphia is a term used to describe difficulties with writing. It's mostly associated with writing issues, but doesn’t usually include trouble expressing thoughts. However, when people struggle to write down what they’re thinking, it can make it difficult for them to organize and share their ideas. One of the most common signs is messy handwriting. Other signs can include:
- Struggling with spelling
- Poor spatial skills, like uneven spacing
- Awkward pencil grip
- Slow handwriting and appearing particularly tired from writing
