Announcer: The e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello, Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 137th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast Series. Last week, Dave Powell talked about SENDA. This week, Dave defines Dysgraphia.

So, I ask you, do you know your e-learning lingo?

Mary Kay: All right, Dave, tell us about Dysgraphia.

Dave Powell: Dysgraphia is a learning disability that impairs a child's ability to write well. It manifests in a number of ways. A student may lack basic grammar and spelling skills, use incorrect words when trying to transfer thoughts into writing, make inappropriately sized or spaced letters, or continually misspell words despite repeated instruction.

Mary Kay: All right, Dave. That’s really interesting. Is there anything else our listeners should know about dysgraphia?

Dave: Yes. Dysgraphia is often diagnosed in individuals with other disorders. Some that frequently accompany dysgraphia include Tourette Syndrome, Asperger Syndrome, and ADHD.

Mary Kay: Thanks, Dave! Have a great afternoon!

Dave: You, too. Talk to you soon.

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to Episode 137 of the e-Leaning Lingo Podcast. This week Dave Powell talked about Dysgraphia. The Episode 137 Podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast Blog.

Next time on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast we’ll talk about another term used in knowledge organizations. Until that time, have a great week!
