“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
― Ernest Hemingway
Dysgraphia is something I come across daily as a resource teacher. There are always a handful of students with a legitimate diagnosis. A psychologist or a physician must give this diagnosis based on a series of assessments the child will go through. Poor handwriting does not warrant a diagnosis. These students struggle to make and shape letters correctly. Their handwriting can often look less like letters and more like symbols. Writing takes extreme effort and concentration for these children. They are not avoiding work or being lazy. A person who does not do their research about this learning disabilty is lazy.
