Writing at its best is an expression of a child’s unique ideas, interests, and creative thoughts. Traditionally it involves foundational skills such as spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and grammar, as well as high-level composition skills such as planning and organization. Students with complex communication needs and physical disabilities often miss key early instruction through alternative writing tools and strategies. This does not need to be the case. When parents and educators are equipped with tools and strategies to remove access barriers, students can learn to express themselves through written language. This webinar explores access to writing for students with significant disabilities providing avenues for their unique expressions.
