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.

This webinar is eligible for 1.25 SAC CEE (Category A).
