Dysgraphia help for Teenagers


Dysgraphia help for Teenagers

If your teenager has dysgraphia they will either write quickly and messily, or slowly but very neatly.  They might lose their place when reading, misspell words and misread words.  They might be saying that the letters move on the page as they read.  

A weakness in this area will cause problems in reading, spelling, writing, maths, science and speech.  They may be diagnosed as having dysgraphia, dyslexia, dyscalculia, acalculia or other learning problem.

Does your teenager:

  • have messy handwriting, or 
  • have very neat handwriting that exhausts them
  • have irregular spelling
  • have difficulty in copying written material from a board
  • make careless errors in maths and/or
  • have difficulty in keeping his or her place when reading.
