Understanding Dysgraphia Language-based learning disorders can be co-morbid, meaning that if an individual is afflicted with one, there is a possibility that they also suffer from another. For example, many people with dyslexia also have dysgraphia (difficulty writing) or dyscalculia (difficulty with math).

The frequency of such co-morbidities shouldn’t be surprising. Many aspects of speaking, listening, reading, writing and arithmetic build on the same neuro-functioning. Being able to understand, speak, read and write a language stems from the same brain capabilities.




“Any disorder that hinders the ability to understand language will also interfere with the development of speech, which in turn hinders learning to read and write.”
