I am honored to be Bree Ogden’s Hot Blogger this month! Please head over to This Literary Life where you can read suggestions for encouraging young writing talent. Because I focus on tips for children who are not struggling with diagnosable learning difficulties, I also want to recommend the excellent article “Stealth Dyslexia & Writing,” by Drs. Fernette and Brock Eide, especially for parents whose children are verbally gifted but who have “severe handwriting impairment” or “spelling difficulties in a child’s written output that are far out of character with either their general language, working memory, or attention skills.”
Thanks, Bree, for the opportunity!
