Remediate dysgraphia symptoms with the DGTRA web-based assessment and comprehensive remedial report.

What is Dysgraphia?

Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability (SLD) or writing disorder associated with impaired handwriting, spelling, written language/composition skills, and finger dexterity (muscle movements required to write). It often coincides with other learning difficulties such as dyslexia and developmental coordination disorder. 

What is the DysGraphia Type Remediation Assessment (DGTRA)?

The DysGraphia Type Remediation Assessment (DGTRA) is a quick web-based assessment that generates customized reports that address the common symptoms of dysgraphia and uses a Likert scale to report answers. Suitable for Kindergarten and above, the DGTRA helps determine whether there is enough reported symptomatology to warrant a suspected diagnosis and reveals specific subtypes for targeted remediation. The comprehensive report also provides remedial strategies, teaching suggestions, and recommended reasonable accommodations. 

  • Question Structure: This assessment utilizes Likert scale items to gauge the  presence and intensity of symptoms. These items were carefully developed based on a thorough review of the literature and the DSM-5 SLD with impairment in written expression criteria.
  • Practical Scenarios: The questions present real-life situations, allowing students to accurately reflect their symptom levels.
  • Adaptability: This assessment is versatile and can be completed by students, as well as practitioners, teachers, or parents. This multi-perspective approach provides a well-rounded view of the student's abilities and challenges.
  • Assistance for Struggling Students: For students who find reading or reasoning challenging, the assessments can be taken with support. This support might include having the questions read aloud or discussing them to ensure clear and accurate responses.

Are There Different Types of Dysgraphia?

Yes, there are several subtypes of dysgraphia:

  • Acquired Dysgraphia: Results from a brain injury, disease, or degenerative condition.
  • Developmental Dysgraphia: Refers to difficulties with writing as one develops.
  • Motor Dysgraphia (Peripheral Dysgraphia): Results in messy, slow, and often illegible handwriting, poor tracing and drawing skills, and slow finger-tapping abilities. These issues stem from difficulties in fine motor coordination, visual perception, and proprioception. However, oral spelling is usually preserved.
  • Spatial Dysgraphia: Causes difficulties in spatial perception, leading to poor spacing of letters and impaired drawing abilities. Individuals with this form of dysgraphia struggle with spontaneous writing and copying text, while oral spelling and finger tapping remain intact.
  • Linguistic Dysgraphia (Dysorthography or Dyslexic Dysgraphia): Impacts the written language skills required in the writing process. Spontaneous writing exhibits extra or omitted syllables or letters as well as awkward spacing, letter sizes, and capitalization. Writing is time-consuming, labored, and many words can be illegible.
