I posted a variation of this this on the special ed. board a few months ago, and I got some good responses, but I wanted to get some more ideas because I'm going nowhere fast. What do you do to teach writing to kids who, because of their disabilities, are minimally verbal? They don't have the language skills to say or write a sentence, and when they attempt to, it's awkward. For example, they would say "Us go park", and written it would be the same way. I am working with the speech therapist, but nothing is improving. I just want to see what other teachers, including ESOL teachers, would do. This child is not an ESOL student though.
