My son is 9 years old and in the fourth grade. His handwriting is very sloppy. He writes mostly in all caps and continues to write several letters and numbers backwards. The first time I heard of disgraphia was last year through his school when they talked about testing him BUT, said they couldnt until fourth grade. Now that he is in fourth grade they are telling me that there is no such test. I sit over him at home and make him fix his reversed letters and number as he writes them and in class he has a number and alphabet chart on his desk (as does every other student) that he happily refers to in order to fix the reversed letters. This does not, however, help with the all caps and sloppy writing. I am afraid this s going to start being an issue on his grades now that they are working on editing and he has to write stories on the new staar test. I am at a loss for what to do with this...
