Helping Students with Dysgraphia to Write
Tutors are always looking for ways to help students with handwriting problems (dysgraphia). So, when I came across these worksheets for dysgraphia and dyslexia, I thought they looked excellent. I particularly like the way they come on a USB stick so a tutor can just take them wherever you happen to be and print them out. I must confess, I haven’t used them, and don’t know anyone now who has, so if you teach students with dysgraphia or dyslexia and have used them, please let me know how you got on and what you think of them?
They certainly seem to ‘tick the boxes’, so to speak; patterns, basic as well as complicated shapes, letter reversals, visual discrimination etc., all things needed for students with dysgraphia (and possibly a lot of students with dyslexia).
There are over a thousand printable sheets, so I would think you could find plenty of different ways to try to encourage any age student to practice the same work repeatedly without them getting bored or even noticing, (which let’s face it, is what it’s all about!).

They are approximately $35 (Inc. p&p) which I don’t think is particularly expensive for the flexibility they offer. Available through Amazon.
