Podcast: Partnership Writing

Partnership Writing

We press on! This week’s podcast is the second in the series where we look at each of the natural developmental stages of growth in writing. This particular episode focuses on the most overlooked stage of development in the writing journey and accounts for the development of writer’s block and writing resistance in kids. If you successfully navigate the Partnership Writing phase, your kids will not be plagued with the “blank page, blank stare” syndrome. You’ll both know how to create writing and what role you each play in the process. Enjoy.

    This was so helpful!
    My 13 yo ds with Asperger’s will scream if I ask him to write sentences, and now I understand why. It’s not that he doesn’t have anything to say (he can talk your ear off) it’s more the problem with mechanics that stops him.
    Thank you so much for this insight. It totally resonated with me.

    I had been dreading/avoiding doing writing with him because he is so resistant and I was really at the point of despair.

    Now I know that it’s not that he can’t write but he needs me to partner with him and scaffold him
