Many people who have TS have dysgraphia. The difficulty that dysgraphia causes for individuals with TS is in getting thoughts from the brain to the paper for a wide variety of reasons. This results in handwriting that is messy, sloppy and difficult to read. You may also see margins and spacing are uneven. The person may write very little or refuse to write altogether. The reasons may vary from hand cramping to head and eye tics. It could also be due to coordination or fine motor skills. Handwriting can be slow and laborious and, as a result, an area of struggle. Some people are obsessed with writing perfectly and it takes them an inordinate amount of time to accomplish the task. Frequent erasing and a resistance to write are both signs that the person is experiencing symptoms of dysgraphia.
Have you experienced problems with handwriting as a child or as an adult? Do you have a preference with the color ink you use? If you use a color that you do not prefer, then is there an impact on your penmanship?
