Dysgraphia is in most cases a severe, lasting and persistent disorder. Treatment, which is primarily based on graphotherapy, can improve the writing.
The role of the graphotherapist is to help the child improve his writing in his readability, speed and ease. The progress of the child allows him to regain confidence in him.
On a technical level, at each of the sessions, the "large slipped lines" and the pre-scriptural forms (loops, bridges, sections, etc.) that contain all the forms of letters in the seed are worked before progressively writing.
The graphotherapy treatment begins with a graphomotor assessment in which the graphotherapist observes the child or adolescent writing. He looks at his position (body, arm, hand, fingers) and his writing speed.
The graphotherapist is not a speech therapist, he is a graphologist with solid knowledge in child psychology.
The sessions last three-quarters of an hour and are repeated over 13 to 18 sessions. The average price of a consultation is between 40 and 50 euros and the fees are not supported by the Social Security. However some mutuals reimburse in the form of a fixed price.
On the graphical side, writing generally improves markedly, the letters are well proportioned, the layout is structured and the child writes legibly, without pain or fatigue.
On the psychological level, there is often an improvement in family and friendships, higher grades, and more confident children and adolescents.
Psychotherapeutic treatment may be indicated when children are suffering psychologically.
