Dino Posted February 3, 2012 Share Posted February 3, 2012 Please give me some ideas of what to research for writing programs. My son has not been formally evaluated for Disgraphia, however, he does several of the things listed for Disgraphia. His writing has not improved since he was 3. He protests writing projects or any school work that involves writing. He will be 7 in the fall, and I feel his writing needs to improve. At this point he will write ON HIS OWN (not a lot) and it's all phonetic, somewhat left to right and somewhat top to bottom. There are no spaces between words, often times there are spaces in the middle of words and a lot of the times half the word is on one line, half on the other line with maybe one or two letters even on a third line. All the letters are different sizes ranging from very large to very small. There are many other issues regarding his writing abilities. I simply feel we must get more serious this coming fall and I'd like to start researching writing programs. He knows all his letters, letter sounds, etc, so when I get 'preschool' level things, he protests because it's for babies. (even though that is the writing level he is at) I wonder if we should skip printing and start with cursive, because my husband had many of these same issues as a child and he gave up on writing before cursive was introduced. As an adult he was curious and tried cursive. He was amazed at how much easier and how much more sense cursive made to him. Maybe this would be the case with my son? I would love to hear your suggestions on writing programs that did or did not work for your child, if your child had struggles with writing.
