Disorder of Written Expression/ Dysgraphia

If you or your child is struggling with writing or coming up/formulating ideas for written assignments despite extra assistance, they may be suffering from a learning disability called Disorder of Written Expression or Dysgraphia. School based evaluations often fail to identify this condition since they often are not even administering the correct tests to be able to identify it. We conduct comprehensive evaluations in order to accurately determine if you or your child has a learning disability in writing.

If your child has been properly diagnosed with Dysgraphia, we can help you to know what to do next. Treatment for this learning disability does not necessarily mean more help with writing. By meeting with one of our experts in this area, we will work with you and your child to first teach you what pieces need to be in place and secondly how to get them in place. Therapy involves working with you as the parent, with your child’s school/teachers, tutoring in assistive technology and multi sensory approaches to writing. We work with you and your child collaboratively to develop intervention plans so that he/she will excel in school, improve their motivation toward learning, increase their self-esteem and reach their highest potential.
