Dysgraphia Tutoring

Does your child tend to struggle with handwriting? Are they often criticised by teachers for "sloppy" penmanship or taking longer to write than their peers. This can result in your child feeling frustrated and alienated at school. But difficulty writing doesn't necessarily mean poor literacy. It can be a case of Dysgraphia.

If your child has been diagnosed with Dysgraphia, it can make education feel challenging and frustrating. They can feel as though they are behind their peers or, worse, that their intellectually inferior. This can lead to a loss of engagement in their learning.

The good news is that we can help with a programme of personalised Dysgraphia tutoring that is completely tailored to the individual learning needs of your child.

What is Dysgraphia?

It's easier for parents to support children with Dysgraphia when they understand it better. Dysgraphia is a neurological disorder which results in difficulty with written expression and can thus be an impediment for them all across the curriculum.

Dysgraphia goes beyond poor handwriting and fundamentally affects a child's ability to convert language from a verbal form to a written form. Experts are unsure exactly what causes Dysgraphia but early diagnosis and treatment are integral in helping your child overcome the learning challenges that come with the condition.

Learning challenges of Dysgraphia

Students with Dysgraphia often find writing a slow, painstaking and laborious process. Thus, written tests and timed tests can provoke great feelings of stress and anxiety. They may struggle to form or hold the hand configurations that we use when writing. Their writing may look spidery, show inconsistency in spaces between words or letters and they may often sound out the words they write as they're writing.

Students with dysgraphia struggle with legibility in their handwriting and completing written tasks within allotted time frame. Since most of the curriculum requires some form of handwriting, it's no surprise that children with Dysgraphia are at risk of becoming disengaged from their learning and giving up in frustration.

Fortunately, we're here to give them the help and support they need.
