There is also a strong correlation between bright/gifted people and dysgraphia. You can often get a time extenton for writing exams if they are to be handwritten via spec ed dept at most Universities.

Typing and the watershed of 1995 w affordable computers has changed a lot for dysgraphics and it is very interesting to hear of this new font.
My son has a very severe form of dysgraphia. In addition to the problems with his handwriting, typing is also an issue. There is a strong disconnect between his brain and his hands. He can read a book, or listen to a lecture, or watch a movie, and tell it back to you in conversation, but if you ask him to write it down, whether with a pencil or a keyboard, it is almost impossible. The only thing that has helped is good speech recognition software, or scribing to a person who then writes down what he is saying.
