Writing is challenging for the majority of learners. For students with language problems, difficulties with written expression are considered one of the most common learning challenges. There is much to learn about the ways in which oral language skills impact on the acquisition of written language in children. Writing Development in Children with Hearing Loss, Dyslexia, or Oral Language Problems focuses on the nature of the writing problems experienced by children with oral language problems. Three clinical groups are considered: children with hearing loss, oral language difficulties, and dyslexia. Each contribution comes from an expert or team of experts in these three areas and in the field of language and writing. The volume provides current understandings to help guide and support practitioners and researchers alike. It provides timely information across languages and countries, enhancing our understanding of the links between oral language and written language across languages.
