I think the biggest thing I have learned is that there are different components/categories of dysgraphia. The assignments required me to analyze and reanalyze tasks.

After taking a step back to analyze dysgraphia, I didn’t realize there were so many differences between the different types!

I met and evaluated a kiddo today that I just know is dysgraphic. It was so clear, and I felt so good knowing, instead of wondering!
