The Five Types of Dysgraphia

There are five types of dysgraphia, but it is not uncommon for an individual to be affected by more than one type.

Dyslexic Dysgraphia
Students with Dyslexic Dysgraphia spontaneously have illegible writing, but their copied work is legible. Students with Dyslexic Dysgraphia have poor spelling skills. Normal finger tapping speed is common, and the individual may not have Dyslexia, but they sometimes occur at the same time.
Motor Dysgraphia
Motor Dysgraphia occurs due to  poor fine motor skills, dexterity, low muscle tone, or unspecified clumsiness. Written  work is often poor to illegible, both when copied or original. Letter formation can be done well through extreme effort and long time. Poor grip on writing instrument results in  slanted writing, but spelling   is not impaired. Finger tapping speeds are below average.
Spatial Dysgraphia
Spatial Dysgraphia occurs because the student does not understand spacing. The writing is sometimes illegible, both copied and original, but finger tapping and spelling is normal and unimpaired. Students with Spacial Dysgraphia struggle to keep writing on lines and spacing between words.
Phonological Dysgraphia
Phonological Dysgraphia is poor  writing and spelling when  encountering unfamiliar and irregular words. Phonemes   are not able to be memorized, which makes decoding through blending difficult for students with Phonological Dysgraphia.
Lexical Dysgraphia
Characteristics of Lexical Dysgraphia include normal spelling ability when sound to letter patterns are present with misspellings of irregular words. This is most common in English and French, because the languages are less phonetic in comparison to other languages. This form of dysgraphia is rare.
