Does your child seem lazy, sloppy, and unmotivated? He could be suffering from a learning glitch called dysgraphia, which can be helped! Some children have to use so much energy to actually put thoughts to paper that they never want to write at all!
Not all children who with a writing block also have visual/spatial difficulties, but they often overlap. This is a very common learning block in gifted children, often not identified until the teens when they struggle to turn in work. You’ll even find out if your child is hard wired to be right-handed or left-handed.
