Parents of ADHD Children
Written expression troubles
My son is six years old and has ADHD and dyspraxia. I’ve noticed since he’s started school that writing is really, really hard for him. Not just forming the letters, but organizing his thoughts and actually getting them on paper. Is this connected to his ADHD or could this be something else? I’ve noticed a number of children with ADHD have trouble with writing so I’m wondering if there is a connection. I know writing involves a lot of motor planning, which he struggles with, but I’m wondering of it could be a learning disability along th ADHD.
