5 Common Myths About Dysgraphia
My son was recently evaluated by a specialist (last year the school district) and essentially was diagnosed with disgraphia, almost every characteristic. He is in the 4th grade at a public school receiving extra reading and writing assistance. The specialist said he would benefit going to a school for dyslexic children or making sure he receives adequate services in a public school. How would a dyslexic school benefit my child?
