Written Language Intervention Program
(grades 2-12)

This program is suitable for students with handwriting, spelling, grammar, and/or written expression deficits.
Upon initial evaluation, a Student Intervention Plan (SIP) is customized based on his or her identified needs and goals. This intervention will start at the child’s readiness level and gradually increase in difficulty until the student reaches the expected level of writing proficiency.

Instruction in this program includes most or all of the following components based on the child’s identified needs:

  • auditory processing skills
  • visual processing skills
  • listening comprehension
  • oral expression development
  • handwriting development
  • visual-motor integration activities
  • spelling practice
  • grammar introduction and practice
  • written expression at a sentence, paragraph, and composition level
  • word finding skills
  • social-emotional development activities
  • cognitive training for memory, attention, reasoning skills, and processing speed
  • basics of executive function coaching
  • Brain Integration Therapy for brain-and-body connection
Small-group intervention sessions for this program are scheduled 2 days per week on days and times agreed by the school or parents and the interventionist.
This intervention program has an approximate duration of 6 to 8 months for students with mild deficiencies and 10 to 12 months for students with more severe struggles. Thus, exiting the program in either one-on-one or small-group sessions will depend on individual progress and the readiness level achieved.
