Struggling Writers Intervention Study

Dr. Anthony Koutsoftas, director of the Reading, Oral Language, and Writing Lab (ROW-Lab) at Seton Hall University is conducting a study on how to improve writing skills in elementary school students who struggle with writing. The study will take place entirely through remote video-conferencing platforms meaning that you participation is all from home. Participating families will be able to select the days and times for participation in the study that fits their schedule. The study be provided by graduate students in Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy with special training in supporting written language outcomes for schoolchildren.

Elementary school students in grades K through 8 who are struggling with writing are welcome to participate in this study. Struggling writers are children whose teacher has indicated that the child struggles with one or more areas of writing. The study will take approximately 8 weeks and require that the student login to remote sessions twice per week. Parents/caregivers will be required to complete short surveys and support their child to login to sessions.
