This is a course designed to help children with all aspects of the writing process.
Sessions designed to motivate and encourage students.
Practical information with technology, and non-tech. ideas and information.
A step-by-step, scaffolded approach.
This is a pilot program. It will be a virtual, online program. The first one is being offered to a select group of students at no cost so that we can evaluate the effectiveness of the program. We ask that you (parent or guardian) are fully involved and provide the feedback that we need.
Parent participation is required for all online sessions.
Students will need two devices for this program:
1. One device for the Zoom call (this will be a group session - students and parents can see each other and talk to the group)
2. Another device (with keyboard and camera) for doing the writing activities.
To participate in this program the parent/guardian will need to sign a consent form.
I will be running this program together with two of my colleagues:
Mrs. Marcelle Niehaus
(Occupational Therapist, living and working in South Africa)
Mrs. Alison Soutter
(Speech and Language Therapist, living and working in the UK)
and me, Bridgette Nicholson,
