Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects writing, which requires a complex set of motor and information processing skills. Dysgraphia makes the act of writing difficult. It can lead to problems with spelling, poor handwriting, and putting thoughts on paper. This fact sheet from the National Center for Learning Disabilities looks at warning signs of dysgraphia, what strategies can help, and how to approach writing assignments. (posted May 3, 2012)
