2. Make writing a part of daily routines and activities.

What to Do:

  • Provide multiple opportunities daily for both functional and creative writing
  • Assess the child’s sensory, physical, cognitive, and language needs to determine the most functional method of writing and what supports may be needed for each task
  • Present each task in a consistent manner

Things to Consider:

  • Have you thought about how to include writing tasks as part of existing daily activities?
  • Have you added new opportunities if current opportunities are limited?
  • Are you being a good writing model by allowing the child to see or feel you writing as you talk about what you are doing and why?
  • How can you use the child’s writing throughout the day so that it is seen as important and purposeful?
