Terrific Teddy’s Writing Wars is a book for explaining dysgraphia to children or explaining writing difficulty to children. Dysgraphia is a term that includes difficulty putting thoughts onto paper, messy handwriting, copying problems and fine motor difficulty. You’ll meet Teddy – a smart boy who struggles to write down his thoughts and ideas and have neat penmanship. When his teacher and his parents discover the root of the problem, they’re able to give him the tools and support he needs. This book is designed for a parent, grandparent or teacher to read to a child to explain dysgraphia. In doing so, you form a team designed to help the child learn and grow, despite his or her learning differences. In the book’s introduction, author and school psychologist Jim Forgan, Ph.D., explains how to discuss dysgraphia with children in a way that’s hopeful and encouraging. The book offers two endings so parents can choose to use the term dysgraphia with their child or just a general description.

From the Author:

Even when they try their best, some children struggle to have neat handwriting, put their thoughts into writing, copy from the board, or even copy a math problem from a textbook onto paper.  Many of these children have dysgraphia which is a writing learning disability.  I wrote this book to help give children understanding that it's ok to have writing challenges and there are things we can do to help.  This book gives children understanding, hope, and solutions for helping.  
I'm the parent of a child with dysgraphia and understand how embarrassing it can be for a child's handwriting to look like they are much younger than their age or even have a teach blame them for not trying.  Children with dysgraphia are smart but their handwriting can make them feel dumb.  "Terrific Teddy's Writing Wars" helps children realize other people have handwriting difficulty too including some highly successful people.
