Computer: A computer helps eliminate the questions of “How do I make the letters?”, “Where are the letters placed on the line,” and “Where is the sentence placed on the page.” computer use is not to replace handwriting as worksheets still demand legible handwriting but does offer recourse for longer assignments.  In severe cases of dysgraphia, software allowing a student to dictate into the computer is available.  Consider an Alpha Smart instead of a LapTop: www.alphasmart.com

Shorten writing assignments

Encourage editing and proofreading.

Encourage a good pencil grip.  Use an inclined clipboard and a gripper if needed for hand fatigue or discomfort.
