Why is it important?

Writing and composition are a part of our everyday lives. Most of us don’t make it through the day without writing something, even if it is just a simple to-do list. A person with inadequate composition skills will be at a disadvantage when entering the work force. These skills start to develop even before formal education begins, and it is vital that they continue to develop throughout their education. Signs of struggle could indicate a writing disability, signs such as the way a student holds their pencil, an inability to use the lines on the paper appropriately, as well as uneven spacing between letters (PBS Parents, 2003). Watching for these signs, as well as many others, is necessary in order to catch any possible writing disability that may prevent a child from excelling later.
