The Advantages of Using Electronic Processes for Commenting on and Exchanging the Written Work of Students with Learning Disabilities and/or AD/HD
Carmichael, Stephen; Alden, Peg
Composition Studies, v34 n2 p43-57 Fall 2006
Researchers have explored the impact of computer-assisted feedback and electronic mail on students' writing, but most of the work to date seems to have focused on second language writers, peer response, or response as part of an online composition course. Although research has documented the importance of certain generic features of word processing programs (e.g., storing, copying, pasting, and spell check) for people with writing difficulties, the distinct advantages of the easily mastered and widely available technologies of electronic commenting and electronic exchange of documents have yet to be explored for students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorder and their instructors. This article provides a brief introduction to each of these electronic processes and discusses the advantages of using these processes for students with LE and/or AD/HD. (Contains 2 figures.)
