Your Key to Lasting Learning Success!

Symptoms of Dysgraphia:


Does your child:

  • push extremely hard on his/her pencil?
  • have an incorrect pencil grip?
  • form circles from the bottom up or other letters or numbers in the same manner?
  • fatigue from writing after a short time?
  • write letters that jumble together?
  • find it difficult to copy from the board or from a book?
  • avoid writing?
  • have unorganized thoughts when writing?
  • refuse to write when asked?
  • have a difficult time with spatial skills?
  • have a difficult time writing letters or numbers from left to right?
  • have trouble with visual motor integration or copying shapes and figures correctly?
  • have a difficult time tying shoes?
  • find tracing or cutting with scissors difficult?
  • have a difficult time writing on provided lines or staying within margins?
  • blend upper and lower case or print and cursive together when writing?
  • erase a lot, often breaking through the paper and ripping the paper?
  • write jumbled sentences?
  • have a difficult time with grammar and spelling rules?
  • have letters that run together on a page?
  • find it difficult to distinguish between similar letters or shapes, such as an "h" and an "n" or a circle and an oval?



There are three different types of dysgraphia:


1.  Motor Dysgraphia


2.  Spatial Dysgraphia


3.  Processing Dysgraphia




If you want your child to overcome dysgraphia, you must address all three types, or you will only get so far. 


Fortunately, the Harp Learning System includes activities that will strengthen all three areas!

What About Dysgraphia...The Writing Dyslexia?

With all of our new and changing technology,  students today struggle to write with a pen or pencil more than ever before.  Sadly, these students are still expected to write with a pencil on most of their assignments.  This leads to academic failure time and again. 


Dysgraphia is basically a processing problem that causes writing fatigue.  This, in turn, interferes with communication between the brain and the hand when attempting to write. Ideas that are spinning rapidly in the student's mind are not able to be put on paper, because of this missing or weak connection.


                   Dysgraphia has become epidemic in our society!


The answer to developing beautiful handwriting is in developing excellent fine motor skills, eye/hand coordination, perceptual skills, spatial skills,  muscle tone, and proprioception. (which is the awareness of the body's position in space).


Just like any other form of learning, successful handwriting is based on breaking the larger process of writing into these smaller components.  Lacking any or all of these above-mentioned components will result in dysgraphia.  


If your child has dysgraphia, then it is a long and frustrating day at school.  Taking notes is too difficult because the body and brain are not connected well enough to keep up with the teacher's lecture.  Math problems aren't aligned correctly.  Essays become a nightmare!
