FREE Webinar - Low Incidence Writing (Janet Sturm)

Can Low Incidence Students Become First-Time Writers? Learn How!
Dr. Janet Sturm
Thursday, May 8, 2014
11:00 am - 12:00 pm 
Central Daylight Time
Dr. Janet Sturm, Professor at Central Michigan University, will share stories about students who were never expected to write, like Antonio and Sean. Now, as teenagers, they are expressing themselves through writing, despite their various disabilities. Dr. Sturm will explain how she and the teachers at four Michigan schools helped their students learn to write. They introduced an innovative, student-friendly software tool, First Author Writing Software, that gets students excited about writing and also has a built-in new methodology, First Author Writing Measures, that helps teachers measure emergent writing progress. The students now proudly say, "I'm an author!"
Ph.D, CCC-SLP, Central Michigan University Professor. Additionally, Janet collaborated with Don Johnston in the development of First Author Software.
