"Writing is a critical literacy skill and plays an increasingly important role in our everyday lives (Graham & Perin, 2007a). Students in grade school through postsecondary education need to demonstrate sufficient writing abilities to meet literacy-related curriculum demands and to succeed in most of their classes, especially those which use writing as a primary mechanism for assessing achievement. They also are expected to use writing as a means to facilitate learning of different subjects and to deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them (Shanahan, 2009)."

This article explores writing and language expectations, writing difficulties in students with learning difficulties, frequently encountered barriers to implementations and choosing appropriate, evidence-based strategies for writing practices.
