First Author Writing Curriculum is a curriculum for teaching students with cognitive disabilities, developmental disabilities, or learning disabilities how to write. This program was developed to help educators and parents teach students with complex needs how to write because of the increased importance placed on writing in State standards and the Common Core standards. The First Author Writing Curriculum can be used in conjunction with other programs or on its own.
First Author Writing Curriculum includes several writing measures that monitor progress and are used to set goals and measure outcomes. These multiple formative and summative measures guide instruction. The anchor measurement tool is called the Development Writing Scale, this 14-point scale is sensitive to the slightest progressions from scribbling to paragraph writing.
