Dysgraphia and written expression challenges are common in children with ADHD. For these kids, staring at a blank page can feel like torture because writing — even planning to write — requires simultaneously drawing on lots of skills, many of which are not immediately accessible to children with attention deficit. When writing, a child needs laser focus, as well as grapho-motor fluency, organization strategies, proper syntax and grammar, working memory, word-finding ability, and sentence variety. Oh, and spelling. But armed with the right strategies, teachers and parents can help children with ADHD overcome writing challenges.
