Subject: Writing or Language/Arts Program

Hi,
Has anyone found a good language arts/writing program that works with LD children??? Not looking for a program where student is works totally independently. Student must be taught by someone other than this parent. Writing isn't my expertise.

Thanks,
Sue

I like the Stack The Deck program. It makes writing fun and takes you through a good progression. http://www.stackthedeck.com/ I also like how it plays with words, making learning more fun.

Step Up to Writing is good, but not extremely user-friendly. If I were teaching writing now, I would try SRA Expressive Writing and High Performance Writing.
