About the Webinar

Almost 50% of special educators say that improving writing instruction is a top priority. But as students are sent home, our capacity for instruction has changed.

As educators and parents, we value writing, from the scribble to the paragraph and we want to keep our students with complex needs moving forward with their writing interest and skills.

But how?
