Composition Activity: Putting Ideas in Sequence
 There is a lot more to writing than coming up with good ideas. Children with writing disabilities may have no trouble forming coherent and creative thoughts, but struggle endlessly to get those thoughts on paper. Even when they have written something, they may not be satisfied that the words on paper capture what they intended.

For children with writing disabilities, the graphomotor, grammatical, and structural aspects of writing may require so much effort and concentration that their best ideas never make it onto paper. The following writing exercise is designed to simulate what a child with a writing disability might experience during a classroom writing assignment. When you're ready to begin, click the link below.
