Dysgraphia

By: Anonymous

Dysgraphia is a learning disability resulting in lots of trouble with writing. I have a very hard time with writing mechanics. those are things like grammar, punctuation, spelling and others. I also have a hard time with organization, structure of written assignments and getting thoughts down on paper.

Even though I receive a lot of accommodations, some of my teachers don't use them. I go to a private school so there is no special education or IEPs. I am lucky we have a learning specialist to help kids like me advocate and get the help we need in the class room.

Although I have dysgraphia I still love to learn. I especially love history and geography. I want everyone to know that just because I have learning disability does not mean I am stupid or can't learn. It means I am unique and special.
