Dysgraphia, strictly speaking, refers to disability for writing and drawing. Here, dysgraphia is divided into 3 subcategories according to whether a cognitive (linguistic or spatial) or motor factor is the primary impairment. Means of office diagnosis, aided by quantitative cognitive, motor, and academic testing, and currently used means of remediation are discussed. Some recent neuroimaging research is used to suggest more specific future treatments for dysgraphia.
