To Write or Not to Write: Does Using a Word Processor Assist Reluctant Writers?
Outhred, Lynne
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v13 n4 p211-17 Dec 1987
Fifteen learning-disabled students, aged 8-12 years, showed marked improvement in their story writing when they used a word processor as compared to handwritten stories. Children with severe spelling problems made fewer errors in their word-processed stories. Reluctant writers tended to write longer word-processed stories compared to handwritten stories. (Author/JDD)
