Why you should attend this event?

Writing is an important skill for school children and requires the complex orchestration of language and executive function skills to meet this academic challenge. Writing lends itself well to targeting executive functions and language skills because of the complex nature of the task. In this workshop, participants will unpack the writing process into component parts including handwriting, spelling, text generation, planning, revising, and self—regulation. The theoretical foundations of each of these skills along with current best practices for targeting these skills in elementary schoolchildren will be the focus of this course. Participants will leave the course with a list of strategies that have an evidence—base for supporting struggling writers including those with special education needs, language disorders, and executive function difficulties.

Who Should Attend?

Speech-language pathologists, special educators, general educators, learning specialists, psychologists, occupational therapists, and other personnel working with elementary school children on writing skills.
