register Some children and adolescents hate to write, have difficulty getting their thoughts into writing, spell better orally than in writing, are better able to convey thoughts through speaking than through writing and create written work that may include a jumbled mixture of upper and lower case letters. Some writing may be illegible, even to the writer. Learn to recognize the symptoms of Dysgraphia and review a summary of research on this learning profile. You will leave with valuable recommendations for intervention and tips for how to partner with schools to make sure that your sons or daughters are able to reach their potential as writers.
