Building Research Capacity
Dysgraphia Life has received a $250,000 award from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for a project called, Building Research Capacity for Patient Centered Outcomes Research in the Dysgraphia Community.
The overall project goal is to build, engage, and educate the dysgraphia community on patient-centered research practices and prioritize research on the most important questions for people diagnosed and their families to improve health outcomes.
This engagement award project will not only help us raise awareness of dysgraphia and the large number of students that are struggling with learning disabilities in written expression, it will allow us to prioritize the research that is most important to those diagnosed and their loved ones. There are so many research needs in this community and a lot of work to do. We are thrilled to be able to partner with a fantastic group of diverse stakeholders to carry out this project.”

This project is being advised by a multi-disciplinary Research Advisory Board who bring professional and lived expertise to the project.
There will be opportunities for the entire community of those impacted by dysgraphia (adults, parents/guardians, educators, researchers, clinicians, etc..) to participate and share feedback about what topics are important to them. Watch this page or join our monthly email list to stay informed about the project.
This project was funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (EACB-26111).
