Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects a person's fine motor skills. For someone affected, tasks that others may find trivial become exceptionally challenging. Using scissors, glue sticks, pens and pencils can cause frustration and physical pain. This can make learning difficult, especially for young children. Some seek out help from Occupational Therapists, or OTs. An OT can diagnose and work with individuals to lessen the hindrances brought on by dysgraphia.
