Dysgraphia is the medical term to describe a learning disability in writing and written expression.
A child with dysgraphia may manifest some of the following issues:
- Tense, tight and awkward pencil grip
- Difficulty holding pencil too high or too low
- Fatigue and tiredness when writing
- Pain in hand while writing
- Avoids drawing or writing tasks
- Messy or illegible handwriting
- Writing can be riddled with spelling mistakes
- Difficulty organizing thoughts on paper
There are three important characteristics or components that make up the writing process:
- Visual spatial
- Fine Motor
- Language processing
The visual spatial issue would manifest as trouble discriminating shapes, letters, numbers, etc. The fine motor issue would manifest as difficulty with pencil grip, holding with too much tension causing muscular pain and fatigue. Handwriting may be slanted as well as poor or illegible. The language processing issue would manifest as not knowing what to write or where to start the writing process and having trouble re-reading what they have written.
The Intelligence Integration system dramatically improves a person’s fine motor functioning thus improving the connection and co-ordination between the eye’s, fingers and hands. Also promoting smooth communication between the brain’s hemisphere’s
Helping to promote and restore ease of finger management and motor function for writing, drawing and coloring. Improving eye motor and muscle function thus improving spatial awareness and language processing abilities. Improving the quality of communication between the brain’s hemisphere’s for faster mental processing abilities.
