Dysgraphia means difficulty with handwriting. There are many different causes for dysgraphia. A thorough evaluation is performed that addresses all areas of this diagnosis and a treatment plan is developed based on these findings. A whole body approach is used to improve handwriting skills. If sitting at a desk and practicing would have corrected the issues involved, then these patients would not have any difficulties because this is the approach used in schools. Children with dysgraphia need more to correct their problems with handwriting skills.
Young adults who are in college sometimes need to have their dysgraphia documented one more time at the college level. This service is provided along with suggestions for classroom modifications that may be needed.
