Dysgraphia

According to the Learning Disabilities Association of America:

“Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability that affects a person’s handwriting ability and fine motor skills. It involves impaired ability to produce legible and automatic letter writing and often numeral writing, the latter of which may interfere with math.  Dysgraphia is rooted in difficulty with storing and automatically retrieving letters and numerals.  Individuals with dysgraphia often have difficulties in Executive Functions (e.g., planning and organizing).”
