Dysgraphia in a 14 year old
We have a new diagnosis of dysgraphia in my 14 year old son. We're not surprised at all--he's always struggled with both penmanship and composition. His diagnosis also includes very mild inattentive-type ADHD, a math fluency problem, and slow processing speed. So, how can we help him? We had his assessment done at the UCB Psych Clinic and they gave us a list of names/agencies that could help, but I am looking for more personal recommendations for tutors, educational therapists, etc. It is the dysgraphia that concerns me the most, so someone who really knows about that would be ideal. It would be especially great if the recommendations were for people close to Rockridge/Elmwood, but at this point I'll take what I can get. In case it matters, our son is in OUSD and otherwise has no issues. He has great friends, is relatively happy, and is also athletic (which helps his self-esteem--struggling in school has otherwise damaged his self-esteem). Thank you!
