While writing may not be enjoyable for many children, there are others who battle writing so strongly that as a parent, you know it is just not "normal". Your child may be very bright and possibly be able to weave a wonderful oral story, but the process of putting spoken words onto paper is so overwhelming that your child resists you and fights you every step of the way. Why do some children dread writing so intensely? The problem may be a writing glitch known as dysgraphia.
In this DVD, Dianne Craft identifies four natural learning gates and explores the many characteristics of dysgraphia concluding with a simple diagnostic test parents can give their children to assess them for dysgraphia. Some of the traits you may notice if your child has dysgraphia include letter and number reversals, poor spacing with manuscript writing and math problems, copying from the board or a book is difficult and often is completed one letter at a time, words contain mix of upper case and lower case letters, and he may experience difficulties with fine motor skills. Other characteristics of children with a blocked learning gate are expanded upon before Mrs. Craft introduces us to a simple exercise designed to eliminate dysgraphia, which is demonstrated multiple times with children of various ages. While the exercise will be easy to implement at home, she acknowledges it is not an overnight process; in fact, her recommendation is to complete the exercise four days a week for eight weeks for maximum benefit. Included in the DVD are tips to overcome the common roadblocks to successful integration of the "writing eight" exercise. Professionally done, this DVD provides parents the knowledge they need to understand the writing struggles experienced by their bright learners as well as the confidence to assist them in conquering the blocked learning gate.
