When approaching writing instruction for students with disabilities, it is helpful to consider writing as a form of communication, rather than focusing on the physical task of manipulating a pencil or keyboard. Regardless of age, all writers must progress through the same developmental stages of writing.
T-TAC ODU is pleased to offer the following free TACtics to support your writing instruction for students with intellectual disabilities:
Teaching the Write Way guides educators through the developmental stages of writing. This TACtic explores a variety of writing tools and activities that make composition accessible for students of varying abilities and needs.
