Dysgraphia: Allergy to Pencil

By: Dianne Craft


Do you have a child who seems to be ?allergic? to a pencil? If you have a child who groans and fusses about writing or still writes reversals or spells a word orally correctly but leaves out letters when he writes, this workshop is for you! This child?s math papers are often hard to read because the numbers are lined up so poorly! These children are often thought of as sloppy, lazy, or unmotivated when they really have a writing glitch. They are using way too much energy for the writing process, thus are reluctant to put pencil to paper for anything. This often is a true dysgraphia. The writing learning gate is the most common gate that is blocked with gifted kids. They know so much, but just can?t get their thoughts down in writing because of this blocked learning gate. In this workshop you will learn how to identify this common glitch and learn of the resources that many parents use to correct this problem at home. If your child is still ?dictating? stories while you write them, you will learn how to use the ?Right Brain Writing Method? that Dianne used with her students to get them writing sentences, paragraphs, and papers in one year. These kids with ?loose thought patterns? need special props when learning to write.
