Enriched Writers' Workshop: High-Quality Writing Instruction for Adolescents With Developmental Disabilities
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
Using the alphabet to write is especially critical for students with developmental disabilities (DD) because conventional writing opens possibilities for self-expression. To become literate, all students, including those with DD, need access to effective writing instruction that engages them in authentic, meaningful, and frequent writing experiences. Historically, students with DD have received writing instruction focused at basic functional levels (e.g., worksheets, drill-and-practice). In this session, we’ll describe the Enriched Writers’ Workshop, an approach that provides comprehensive, high-quality writing instruction to students with DD.
You will be able to:
- describe learning considerations for adolescents with DD
- summarize the core learning goals of the Enriched Writers’ Workshop
- explain several strategies that can be used to support the writing and communication development of adolescents with DD
