Literacy = reading + writing + keyboarding

  • Writing is a separate neurological process from reading and keyboarding.

  • It is so much more than putting words on paper.

  • It is a visual interpretation of where to place letters on the style of paper.

  • It is the motor control that keeps your body upright and pencil control.

  • It is memory and overcoming the fear that occurs when it is difficult.

  • It is language syntax and the cognition required for creative prose.

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 them!

~ K.R.

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!
