Abstract: The purpose of this study was to study to measure the level of dysgraphia among school children. Dysgraphia is actually an inability to write properly within the given margins and space. Many other tests were used in previous research to assess the dysgraphia. Dysgraphia questionnaire was used. It is 22 items scales which is divided into 3 subscales (difficulty in cognition, disorganized motor ability and difficulty in problem solving). Subscale named difficulty in cognition contains 9 items, subscale named disorganized motor ability contains 7 items and subscale named difficulty in problem solving contain 6 items. This study is based on survey method. The sample of (N=100) students both male and female was selected from Muslims Girls High school and nearby available students of class 6th to 10th and age range from 8 to 16 years by convenient sampling method. There is a significant positive relationship between DIC (Difficulty in Cognition) and DMA (Disorganized Motor Ability) that mean students having disorganized cognitions having disorganized motor abilities as well. There is significant positive relationship between DIC and PS as well that mean problem solving, and cognitions are strongly related to each other and have strong impact. There is a significant positive difference problem solving and age which mean problem solving ability varies with age. There is a significant positive difference between DMA and age as well. There exists a significant difference between PS and family system. A significant difference exits between PS and class of the participant.
