Myth #3: Dyspraxia is the same as dysgraphia.
Fact: Dyspraxia and dysgraphia can cause similar or overlapping struggles with writing. But they’re different conditions. Dyspraxia causes problems with fine motor skills, including the physical task of printing and writing.
Most kids with dysgraphia struggle with printing and handwriting, too. But children with dysgraphia can also experience difficulties with spelling and organizing thoughts when writing or typing. For example, kids with dysgraphia might struggle to share their thoughts in writing, even when they know what they want to say. The end result could be full of errors and barely legible.
