Students with learning disabilities can be successful! Having the right supports in place, finding strategies that work best for them, and getting the student to believe that they can be successful are all crucial elements to scaffold the student to success. Even in the absence of a learning disability, all learners can benefit from targeted writing strategies to address spelling, grammar, writing conventions, and composition.
