What is Dysgraphia?
Dysgraphia is a learning disability that involves difficulty in handwriting. Children with dysgraphia may write very slowly, their hand writing may be illegible, and they may make numerous spelling errors because of their inability to match up sounds and letters.
This difficulty may occur due neurological issues. The child may face difficulty in fine motor activities too like colouring, tracing, holding a pencil, etc.
