Dysgraphia: Foundations for assessment
Dysgraphia is a neurological condition that interferes with one’s ability to communicate effectively and efficiently in writing. Far more than sloppy handwriting, dysgraphia affects not only motor skills but 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.
