Private School For Dysgraphia

Educators at The Roig Academy, a private school in Miami that emphasizes the importance of individualized instruction, have a thorough understanding of the learning differences that each of its students may be diagnosed with.

What is Dysgraphia?

Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability that affects a person’s handwriting ability and fine motor skills. Problems may include illegible handwriting, inconsistent spacing, poor spatial planning on paper, poor spelling, and difficulty composing writing as well as thinking and writing at the same time. A child who experiences dysgraphia may have trouble in certain classroom environments. Choosing a school for children with dysgraphia or learning differences can help a child with dysgraphia thrive in an educational setting.
