On March 26, 2014, I participated in the webinar “Individual Differences and Academic Achievement: What Does the Research Tell Us about Written Expression” offered through Pearson. The presenter was Amy Dilworth Gabel, Ph.D., NCSP, Director, Training, and Professional Development, Pearson Clinical Assessment. In the one hour thirty minute session, Dr. Gabel provided an overview of typical developmental processes associated with writing disorders. The participants were exposed to information on cognitive factors that are related to written expression, subtypes of written expression disorders, assessment batteries that can help identify written expression disorders, and some accommodations and teaching strategies for certain types of writing difficulties.
