Efficiently composing a piece of writing is an important marker of success in our education system. However, many individuals struggle to write well, particularly if they have any specific learning difficulties. In this lecture Professor Vince Connelly will demonstrate how the writing process often breaks down for these individuals and examine what can be done to try and improve their writing skills.
