Ask a question


Dysorthographia is a learning disability in writing occurring in the absence of visual, hearing, or intellectual impairment. It appears as difficulties in recognition, understanding, and reproduction of written symbols. It is identified by slow writing and frequent errors. Dysorthographia affects all spheres of spelling: grammar, conjugations, and sentence and word construction. Dysorthographia makes written work complicated. Sometimes dysorthographia is associated with dyslexia. A speech therapist can sometimes improve the situation.
