The Handwriting Collaborative 2022 International Conference on the Science of Written Expression – 60% discount for NHA members
Friday 21st January 2022 to Sunday 23rd January 2022
In today’s classrooms the emphasis on student achievement through written expression is at its highest.
Current research on writing defines written expression as “the complex self-directed process that involves the higher order cognitive skills of idea generation, planning, organizing, translating, and revising ideas into a written product which communicates meaning.”
At The Handwriting Collaborative we are dedicated to providing educators with access to the research, and the resources, that are key to improving the writing development of all learners. With this goal in mind, we have gathered together over 30 leading international researchers in the fields of literacy education, psychology, neuroscience, occupational therapy, and more to share the findings of their most recent work at our 2022 International Conference on the Science of Written Expression. This virtual conference, on ALL aspects of the science of writing, will be held online January 21st-23rd, 2022.
