Dysgraphia in Children: Lasting Psychomotor Deficiency or Transient Developmental Delay?
Smits-Engelsman, Bouwien C. M.; Van Galen, Gerard P.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n2 p164-84 Nov 1997
Used writing tasks recorded on a computer-monitored XY tablet to differentiate between normal variations in psychomotor development and dysgraphia in 16 young children. Found that control of spatial accuracy, not allograph retrieval or size control, discriminated dysgraphic children from others. Poor writers were less accurate than proficient writers and did not catch up with peers within one year. (Author)
