In brief: Dyslexia is from the

brain's inability to process phonemes, the smallest units of sound in a language & often follows delays in language, the verbalization of ideas.
Written expression is much harder than reading words. Delays in fine motor & speech, the motor aspect of language,often co-exist because the areas of the brain that control each are very close to each other. Call 4660038 to request educational testing.

"Overcoming Dyslexia" by Dr. Sally Shaywitz gives a full explanation. An underlying genetic or other medical neurodevelopmental disorder can be the cause of learning disabilities, motor impairments, ADHD & behavioral issues in a child. Ask your pediatrician for referral to a Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrician & child (neuro)psychologist.

In brief: Motor skills? Yes

Many children that are found to be dyslexic often have associated problems with both small and large muscle incoordination, which can affect handwriting and general clumsiness.
There isn't evidence that dyslexia causes the motor problems, but it's more like the brain is "wired" a little differently.
