Writing is an essential skill for individuals with Rett Syndrome if we hope for them to become totally independent communicators. But writing is often challenging for many reasons for those that cannot hold a pencil or operate a computer independently. This course will lay out the essential foundations for writing. These foundational skills are often bypassed for individuals with Rett Syndrome as being too hard or impossible to achieve. Robust videos will example each foundational skill that neuro-typical children easily gain, but our kiddos need to have carefully engineered and made accessible for them to be successful. How to begin teaching the act of writing and the tools to use will be explained and modeled in video. These tools are readily available on the Rett-U website and will make writing not only possible but fun! Experience has taught me that individuals with Rett Syndrome love to write – let’s get them started!
