In today's episode, Elizabeth and I chat about questions that often come up about dictation.   When do we know our child is ready for dictation, where to begin and whether dictation can be used with an older child. And for practical tips, check out a new video of dictation with my six year old grandson.

34:00 - What if your child still struggles with writing letters?
