Dysgraphy: the symptoms

The symptoms of dysgraphia are based on abnormalities in the conduct of the line in writing, leading to difficulties in coordination, irregularities of spacing between letters and words, and malformations of the letters. The writing is slow and difficult to read.

We consider several kinds of dysgraphies whose symptoms differ:

  • stiff dysgraphia (associated with tension and tension during writing),
  • soft dysgraphia (irregularity in the dimension of the letters giving an impression of negligence),
  • slow and precise dysgraphies (very applied writing with an excess of precision at the cost of exhausting effort),
  • impulsive dysgraphies (with quick and uncontrolled gestures resulting in disorganized writing).

When the child writes, even if he does so relatively satisfactorily, it is at the cost of much effort, control and attention. The writing is not automated.

Associated symptoms are often: a loss of self-confidence in the child, poor school performance, lack of motivation that can lead to a refusal to write, or even a school phobia, etc.

In the vast majority of cases, teachers are unfortunately poorly informed about these writing disorders, and are not trained to take charge of the dysgraphic child. This is why - if in doubt - it is advisable to consult a graphotherapist so that he can assess where is the graphic development stage of the child who consults.
