Re: 8 year old with dysgraphia

That's fantastic, you must be incredibly proud. I've been told my son will probably allowed to use a word processor in exams. I'm sure everyone will be sitting exams on computers in the near future, if only it were now!

In Georgia it IS now. However, that comes with it's own set of problems. Tests, Quizzes, HW worksheets...they are all done on computer in my sons school and he is glitching over them. Looking at a computer screen is different than on paper and it's causing issues with his grades.

Don't computer screens flicker nearly constantly but it's just so fast we can't see it? He has a much harder time on the computer.

That was true of CRT screens, but is not the case for current LCD displays.


Cheers,

Thank you...any thoughts on why computers would cause him to glitch? He can't explain it, he says paper is better, computers he just can't focus.

For any kind of school work or tests even I always wanted paper and pens or pencils. Its easier for me to zone out looking at screens and blur everything together no matter how its laid out.
