Hi. I see you are thirteen years old. If you are having trouble reading, does it show up in your academic record? As in, has your teacher or parents also noted that you are having this difficulty? I'd talk to them about it. Dyslexia is what comes to my mind------ but most public schools in the US screen for this. I'd talk to your parents and see what they think. Good luck
To add one other thing-------- yes, poor handwriting can be tied to learning issues. Certainly not as a rule but sometimes. The brain and nervous system process things in a certain way-------- if this is off in the area of motor planning-------- fine motor skills such as hand writing would be effected. Also with motor planning, you may have issues with organization of thought. Motor planning falls under the sensory system and an occupational therapist treats it. good luck
