Agraphia – is characterized as an inability to write or spell words. It is a common symptom experienced after a stroke but it may occur as a result of other forms of trauma to the Brain as well. While some writing ability can return, with or without treatment, it is unlikely that the individual will regain all of their previous abilities.
