Intended audience: Speech-language pathologists

This session pertains to: School-aged children (6-17)

Level: Introductory (Assumes little or no familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.)

The majority of school-aged children with language impairment will struggle with written language. In this webinar, we will discuss evidence-based methods for supporting aspects of the writing process, including planning, drafting, editing and revising using an approach known as self-regulated strategy development. We will discuss specific resources and techniques that can be applied across different settings.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the specific difficulties of helping children with language and learning impairments achieving writing competence.
  2. Identify empirically-based self-regulated strategies to support writing development in children with language and learning impairments.
  3. Consider the application of writing intervention strategies for children with language and learning difficulties.
