“I Hate to Write”
March 14, 2013
By Autism Society
Most students on the autism spectrum hate to write. Even a simple writing assignment can trigger a major meltdown. Why does this happen? Why is the writing process so difficult for individuals on the autism spectrum? What can a parent or teacher do to help?
This book, written primarily for teachers and others who work with students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), attempts to answer these questions. “I HATE TO WRITE” examines the process of writing through the eyes of a person on the autism spectrum. Written by a speech-language pathologist and an occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience working with students with ASD, the book addresses the tremendous impact writing challenges can have on student behavior as well as on students’ ability to achieve academic standards.
