This talk will briefly touch on some of the reasons why many learners with dyslexia and related specific learning difficulties struggle with writing and potentially become reluctant writers. But most importantly, this talk will provide attendees with simple, practical strategies, resources and activities that could be used to help improve the writing development of a weaker writer and encourage even the most reluctant writer to start writing and sharing all their wonderful ideas.
Claire Harvey, Head of Education at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, will lead the session which will end with attendee questions.
