Reversing Students’ Reluctance to Write – Is It Dysgraphia? A Webinar
July 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmfree
Online Webinar Monday July 15 at 6:00 pm (PST)
This session explores some of the various reasons why students develop a reluctance to express themselves in writing, including dyslexia (which is not just a reading disorder) and the issue of dysgraphia. The reasons will be explored in detail and will include poor pencil grip, handwriting struggles, lack of automaticity, weak background preparation, poor vocabulary, lack of interest in subject matter, spelling, and organizational issues. A variety of practical strategies for reversing this reluctance will be described and clarified.
