Course Description

Dysgraphia continues to create huge confusion for educators and allied health professionals who are unsure whether the main issue for students is composing a piece of writing or poor motor skills, leading to untidy and illegible handwriting.

NESA accredited


In this course, presenters Jillian Zocher and Liz Dunoon cover a deeper understanding of Dysgraphia, its causes and impacts, as well as the varying definitions, straight from the world leading experts.

The second half of the PD identifies the red flags to look out for, checklists to identify Dysgraphia traits, how to diagnose it and how to support students with it.

The suite of resources and support material are world-class and based on the latest research.
