(You can also read our commentary on ChatGPT and AI writing technologies.)
Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability that affects a person's ability to write. It is characterized by difficulties with handwriting, spelling, and/or organizing written language on paper. This can result in poor legibility, slow and laborious writing, and difficulty expressing ideas in writing.
Here are some ways to help students with dysgraphia and specific learning disability of written expression:
Use assistive technology: Students with dysgraphia can benefit from using technology to support their written expression, such as speech-to-text software or word prediction programs.
Provide alternative ways to complete written assignments: Allow students to use a computer or tablet to type their assignments, or provide options for oral presentations or visual projects.
Teach keyboarding skills: Keyboarding can be an easier way for students with dysgraphia to express their ideas in writing, and it can be a valuable skill for future academic and professional success.
Provide explicit instruction in writing skills: Students with dysgraphia may benefit from explicit instruction in writing skills, such as spelling, sentence structure, and organization.
Use multi-sensory approaches: Incorporate multi-sensory approaches to teaching writing, such as tracing letters in sand or shaving cream, or using textured paper to practice writing.
Allow for extra time: Students with dysgraphia may require more time to complete written assignments, so allow for extra time or breaks as needed.
Provide positive feedback: Encourage and praise students for their efforts and progress, and provide specific feedback on areas that need improvement.
It is important to remember that each student with dysgraphia may have different strengths and challenges, and it may be helpful to work with an educational specialist or therapist to develop a personalized plan for supporting their writing development.
