Disabled children and writing

Post by Wasken »

Hey there,

Happy new year to all. I hope everyone will have some new year resolutions. This year mine is to find a solution to my problems. I have a daughter studying in 4th grade. She is a little bit weak in analyzing things. We had tried our best to encourage and improve her skills in writing. But still, she has difficulty in analyzing things and writing complicated words. At last year's new party I met my old friend. While chatting I shared my issues with him. He suggested that an academic writing coach can help children with writing disabilities. I think this could help my child to overcome the difficulties she faces.

A few months back only we noticed her difficulty. I think we were too late to analyze this. Has anyone consulted an academic writing coach before? What are the strategies they implement to improve their writing skills? The one I consulted assists children in every phase of writing from brainstorming to proofreading and revision. I'm on my research on these strategies. I would like to know your response. Please share your views so that I can help my child to overcome her difficulties.

Although you wrote this some time ago, I wanted to reply.
I think you are probably located in Canada. If so, I would suggest meeting with your child's school teacher and have some testing done. This can be done by specialist teacher in your school district. I have found that many of these private tutoring and so-called specialist companies are really nothing very special and cost a lot of money.

Also, sometimes very young children have apparent learning difficulties which disappear as they get older or when they receive good patient and kind teaching. Often they are just lacking in self confidence. However, if a more serious problem exists ,then a good school testing program will help.

I hope that helps.
