Site of the Day Special Needs Children
I've shared my instructions for composing an easy five-paragraph essay, but if your child responds more to filling in blanks on a screen than writing on a piece of paper, this neat site may finally get the writing going. By following the program's instructions, students can create a basic outline, fill it up with details, then process a complete essay (though one that will probably need some proofreading before turn-in time). The site is free, but to save or edit essays online, you'll need the free registration.

I am the Technology Staff Developer for the Port Washington School District. I have a few elementary teachers that would love to use your site, however we do not have email addresses for our students. Is there a way that you can suggest that we create accounts for our students without an email address?
Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,

Thank You, Barry.
I looked at the site and even did a trial run. I will email this information to our Health Resource Consultants and put it in our knowledge base for future inquiries [with respect to] Traumatic Brain Injury.
U.S. Department of Defense - Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs)
This aid has been removed from their resource base due to lack of government required paperwork.
With its logical, color coded and repetitive procedures www.TheEasyEssay.com , a free site, appears to be of major assistance to those with cognition and thought processing issues from both traumatic brain injury and stroke. It appears to reopen, retrain or form new neural pathways.
The process is quite simple and the results of the use of the program, in general, are that a noted side effect is that users begin to communicate logically.

I had wanted to wait until I got feedback from the teachers. They love it and we are looking at using it with some of our AT devices. Thanks for the update and I will keep you informed of how we are progressing,

Your structure for essays is an answer to prayer. Our son has dyslexia and struggles greatly with organizing, so it is just what I have been looking for.
Thank you so much!

The EasyEssay.com is a resourceful and innovative approach that ought to be considered as a fundamental educational breakthrough. All my life I always shuddered at the thought of having to write essays. As a college student, using the EasyEssay reduces the stress, headaches, and worries that result when essays are assigned. After using the EasyEssay for one of my English assignments, I was amazed by the remarkable features and capabilities of the site that left me thinking where such an invention was when I was younger. Its unique method of outlining and color-coding points allows me to organize my thoughts, ideas, and arguments in a clear, concise, and effective manner. After plugging in all of the necessary information and clicking the compose button, a completed version of the work is generated. Using it as an outline, I would go back and edit the completed version just to polish and add more details so that the work may reflect my writing style and have more information. With the EasyEssay, I no longer have to panic or procrastinate when it comes to writing assignments. Thank you Barry for your ingenious and effective innovation.

This looks like a really valuable resource. I'll try to teach our volunteers to use it in the tutor/mentor program I lead. I've also added it as a link on the http://www.tutormentorconnection.org web site so others can learn to use it.
If you'd like to submit an article from time to time, to coach people in using this, please do.

As Korea's leading educator in the nascent field of English essay writing and law school style debating, I find this approach intuitive and unusually straightforward. My online writing applications target ESL students and have more complex connections to teaching grammar. The programs compliment each other beautifully.

I have just created my first essay using 'easy essay' and would be happy if you would like to use it as a demo piece. I think the site has lots of potential and wish you luck as it develops - Click Here to view my essay is entitled 'What reasons are there to be hopeful for the future?

I thought your website was so cool I have assigned it
to both my teenage daughters. They will start tomorrow, and I'll let you
know how it goes. The course seems clear, logical, and easy to follow, and I
believe they'll find it very helpful. We homeschool, and I've been looking
for something along these lines for a long time. I stumbled on your website
today looking for something else, actually, but I think this is just what
I've been looking for for quite some time. I'm very impressed.
WOW! This program is very useful! I have to write an essay about a subject I despise (Mesopotamian mythology) and was having a hard time getting started on it. The program is helping me get my thoughts in order and build up my essay's "skeleton."

This is just a note to let you know how grateful I am
to have been able to share your wonderful technique with my students for the
past five years. When I teach writing skills your information makes it so
easy for them to write their papers regardless of the length.
Congratulations on this great website, I now have some place to send my students where they can practice on a daily basis instead of just one time during my class.
I have used this technique with my corporate clients, my theology students, and soon with my students at Kaplan University.
Feel free to use my thesis example, "The Moon is Made of Green Cheese" at any time and you are welcome to put it on your website. I know that everyone will enjoy reading it and get a chuckle while they learn how to use your great writing system.
Thanks once again for everything, and good luck on spreading your website to every student every where.

Barry, Just wanted you to know that I am now teaching College Prep English at Broward College …I am also taking a course in Online teaching and Learning at Kaplan for my masters degree and I am using it as a portion of my final project for the class. I will forward you the project when I have completed it. I have given the link to your website to my students at BC and to my classmates. Thanks for all the wonderful work you are doing to help everyone learn how to be a better writer! And boy do we need it!

JustBeGreen is a globally oriented project whose mission is to assure that the most eco-friendly materials are used in the construction of its various communities. We have found that The Easy Essay is of great help in the communication of ideas, especially as it works in any language. The program's almost mathematic approach prevents the user from digressing from the subject. It works for reports from my secretary to our construction personnel. This process saves my associates time, saves my employees time and best of all it, saves me time.
And it is all so simple....Many thanks!

I am so joyful and delighted that I was introduced to The Easy Essay. It is
amazingly clearly structured and very versatile. As physician I recommend
The Easy Essay almost daily to patients to help them organize their thoughts
and improve their ability to concisely communicate their medical histories ,
knowing that The Easy Essay makes this entire process fun and painless. The
Easy Essay gets my highest rating as one of my absolute favorite websites.
Amazing that its inventor, Barry Morse makes his pearls of knowledge
available to the public for free - what a model citizen.

A clinical PhD psychologist reports that he has observed that The Program rehabituates the cognitive process, at all levels, in all disciplines and that the change increases in direct proportion to the use of The Process. To me, that says that the users learn to focus logically, as a matter of habit.
My attorney has told me that she believes that every first year law student should use the program to learn to focus on a single subject.
