I Hate to Write! Tips for Helping Students With Autism Spectrum and Related Disorders Increase Achievement, Meet Academic Standards, and Become Happy, Successful Writers
The writing process requires a high level of coordination between various parts of the brain. In individuals with an autism spectrum disorder, the areas of the brain do not communicate effectively with each other, leading to great difficulty coordinating all the skills needed for writing. As a result, many students HATE TO WRITE! Written in a format that appeals to readers – brief, practical and to the point – this aptly named book focuses on the four areas of writing that are most problematic for students with ASD: language, organization, sensory and visual-motor skills organized under topics such as Getting Started, Knowing What to Write, Getting “Stuck,” Misunderstanding the Directions, and many more. “Take it and use it” worksheets make the task of teaching writing easy and fun. What’s more, it is aligned with the National Common Core Standards. Strategies are appropriate for students K-12 and beyond.
