Without giving short shrift to research, the contributors devote ample attention to the instructional needs of struggling writers and those who work with them."--Kenn Apel, PhD, CCC-SLP, Department of Communication Disorders, Florida State University
"This unique book combines advice on writing instruction and assessment for students with varying learning profiles--those with learning disabilities and language impairments as well as multilingual learners. Chapters present new theories and conceptual frameworks, and recent research. This is an appropriate text for advanced education courses. College and university instructors will have a wide array of chapters to choose from for their teaching."--Susan De La Paz, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Maryland
"Provides a very welcome addition to what is a rather sparse landscape of quality publications on what has often been described as the 'most neglected of the three R's'....Brings together the collected wisdom of an admirable array of writers and researchers from the USA to address various aspects of writing instruction and assessment. Troia's own credentials make him uniquely qualified to edit this valuable reference."--REACH Journal of Special Needs Education in Ireland
