Abstract

Students with language/learning disabilities very often struggle with writing and tend to find the process very frustrating. Their difficulties with transcription, sentence structure, cohesive ties, self-regulated learning, and genre knowledge all play a role in this challenging experience. An understanding of the nature of these difficulties can help us as speech-language pathologists better facilitate students' written language success, thereby helping them meet the writing demands of the classroom.
