Dysgraphia and Writing Supports
This training will help participants get a better understanding of how to assess a student who struggles in writing. Participants will learn writing supports, strategies, and accommodations that teachers can instantly implement in the classroom.
All of us have students who struggle in writing; however, it can be hard to pinpoint what part of the writing process is giving our students the hardest time. This training will help participants get a better understanding of how to assess a student who struggles in writing. We will discuss what formal writing assessments to give, how to take the standard scores and determine which area of writing needs the most support, and finally how to create goals from that data. This training also offers a handful of writing supports, strategies, and accommodations that teachers can instantly implement in the classroom.
