Dysgraphia: Foundations for Assessment

Webinar Length (Hours):



Lori Benson Adams, MEd


Dysgraphia: Foundations for assessment

Dysgraphia is a neurological condition that interferes with one’s ability to communicate effectively and efficiently in writing. More than sloppy handwriting, dysgraphia affects motor skills and the cognitive ability to organize and synthesize ideas. The wide-ranging prevalence rate of 5 to 33% of school-aged children indicates that this is often an area of great confusion, both in assessment and intervention. This powerful 1-hour course provides an overview of the origins and diagnosis processes for children and teens experiencing disorders of written expression.

Learning Outcomes

  1. State the definition of dysgraphia.
  2. List the basic neurology behind disorders of written expressions.
  3. Identify three assessment tools pediatric occupational therapists can use with a variety of students with dysgraphia.
