In a single classroom, writing is one of the
most common manner to communicate however, those with dysgraphia are less capable
to express themselves through writing and they can be misinterpreted as dumb. It is defined as a condition that causes trouble with
written expression. Those children who is suffering from it has difficulty even
just holding a pencil whenever they write and assembling letters on a line.
Patino(2014) stated that Dysgraphia is unfamiliar term but its symptoms are
very common. Part of it are illegible handwriting, incomplete letters, several
mistakes in spelling, saying words aloud to self when writing, trouble in
grammar structure and inefficient use of paper lines and spaces. In addition
to, they also has trouble reading maps or following directions and even writes
jumbled sentences. There are several causes of it which includes brain damage,
physical illness or deformity and intentional poor penmanship. Furthermore, it
could also be caused by multiple mental images, no or inadequate instruction,
disorientation and inadequate natural orientation. Frye (1998) said that Dysgraphia
could be treated in several ways such as academic interventions which will
allow the child to manage their symptoms which will require less writing activities.
It involves extra time for student to take the tests, providing students with
teacher’s copy of notes and reducing the length of written assignments. There
are also several interventions that could be done at home. Encourage them to
dictate sentences into a tape recorder before writing them down. As well as,
engage them in a multi-sensory exercises which will enable them to feel the
letter as they write in the air, sand or paint using their fingers. Writing is
one of the important thing in studying, those having dysgraphia struggling in
academic context needs assistance and support from other people in order for
them to manage their symptoms.
