Writing to Communicate: The Gaynor Writing Program

It is imperative that students with learning differences receive structured and systematic writing instruction during their academic career, and with this in mind, Stephen Gaynor School created the Gaynor Writing Program. At its core, the Gaynor Writing Program is an expository, or non-fiction, writing program based off of Teaching Basic Writing Skills, by Dr. Judith Hochman.
