While there are many programs available to assist children to develop skills in written expression, there is a dearth of programs providing direction to the teacher of children who have adequate reading ability but are unable to express themselves through writing. This is a report of research carried out at Macquarie University Special Education Centre to develop a remedial program for such a student. Successful strategies included slowing down the student's approach to his work, directing his attention to errors and refining his self-monitoring skills. Suggestions are given for further resources in the selection of objectives and assessment criteria. The case study of Darren has been recorded to provide a program direction for professionals involved with teaching children experiencing problems in written expression.
