The sample size included 30 students which were selected by simple random sampling. Of this number, randomly, 15 patients in the experimental group and 15 patients in the control group were replaced. Wechsler’s intelligent test, a dictation test and training software designed by the researcher were used. The experimental group was taught by the training software 12 sessions of 45 minutes twice a week, and the control group was taught by the conventional methods. The descriptive statistic indexes were used including percentages, mean, variance, standard deviation and covariance analysis.

Results: The findings showed that the teaching by the use of training software has a significant effect on the eliminating the dysgraphia of the students. (p<0.05). According to the Eta-squared, the impact was powerful (about 84%).
