Hello

This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.

No specific area in the brain has been linked to dysgraphia.

Tourette's syndrome is related to abnormal activity on the basal ganglia in the brain. A person with both syndromes can experience learning and motor disabilities. Let me know if you have any other questions.

has any brain research been done on dysgraphia that one was born with? could the stress of dysgraphia enhance tourettes symptoms?

You can use this link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16509517 to find a relevant article for treatment. There is no research showing dysgraphia and tourette's syndrome related. Please rate my answer.

Thanks
