This book is mainly an attempt to be precise about the types of difficulties to be found in basic writing papers and beyond that, to demonstrate how the sources of those difficulties can be explained without recourse to such empty terms as 'handicapped' or 'disadvantaged.' This book is divided into sections of difficulty such as, handwriting and punctuation, syntax, common errors, spelling, vocabulary, and beyond the sentence.
