The DeCoste Writing Protocol

College and career readiness standards emphasize writing in the classroom for all students. Students are required to write routinely for long and short periods across a range of tasks. And with students using computers at an earlier age, we need to consider if technology can help them meet classroom demands. Your district needs a process to evaluate writing issues for students with disabilities. Unfortunately, many districts don’t have a systematic way to do this.

Author Dr. Denise DeCoste will walk us through her Writing Protocol. The formative assessment tool helps educators identify factors affecting an individual student’s ability to produce writing. Bring your team and learn how you can use the DeCoste Writing Protocol to make sure your students have access to the tools they need to support their writing!

Presenter: Dr. Denise DeCoste, the author of PAR (Protocol for Accommodations in Reading) and uPAR (online version of PAR), is an occupational therapist and a special educator with 30 years of experience in the field of assistive technology.
