Dysgraphia is a neurological condition that affects a person’s writing abilities and fine motor skills. It affects all the aspects of the writing process including spelling, legibility, word spacing and sizing, and expression. People with dysgraphia are often slow in writing and copying things. Dysgraphia symptoms change over a period of time as children often exhibit fine motor impairment which affects their writing whereas adults seem to have difficulty with grammar, syntax comprehension, and generally putting thoughts on paper.
People with dysgraphia are often misinterpreted as unintelligent however, the challenges are often caused by trouble with motor skills and have no relationship with a person’s Intelligence Quotient (IQ).
