Dysgraphia: Tips and tricks for intervention
Dysgraphia, often referred to as Disorder of Written Expression, is perhaps one of the most misunderstood learning disorders seen in school-aged children. Far more than sloppy handwriting, dysgraphia encompasses motor, processing, attention, and cognitive weaknesses. This 1.5-hour webinar is both highly informative and immediately practical.
- Define Dysgraphia as it relates to school-aged students.
- Distinguish between the three primary forms of dysgraphia and construct appropriate intervention strategies for each.
- Integrate the role of technology into the process of written expression while exploring some of the most widely used apps and websites.
- Critique student samples in order to apply newly-acquired knowledge.
