What are we all about?

The WSDP concentrate on the relations among the development of writing skills and cognitive processes for students from preschool to seventh grade, as well as writing programs to advance skills for children who struggle. We have several overlapping goals:

  • Provide evidence for the efficacy of evidence-based writing interventions
  • Provide evidence of whether select cognitive abilities mediate the effects of the interventions
  • Provide accessibility of professional development for teachers to gain access to effective writing curriculum
  • Develop an empirical framework for writing to provide a strong foundation for creating age-specific measures and effective tools for monitoring progress
