Evaluating and Teaching Students with
Written Expression Disorders or Dysgraphia
Dysgraphia is often considered synonymous with a Specific Learning Disability in written expression, which is a highly complex set of motor and information processing skills. It can manifest in difficulties with spelling, writing conventions (e.g., grammar, punctuation), handwriting, and/or putting thoughts on paper. Because of this multifaceted and varied presentation, simply saying a student has dysgraphia is not sufficient. A student who has not responded to general education interventions for written expression may require specially designed assessment, instruction, and accommodations to learn the skills required to be a proficient writer.
This session will investigate the characteristics of dysgraphia, diagnostic assessment practices, and evidence-based instructional approaches and for students experiencing difficulty with written expression.
