The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effectiveness of the Phelps Sentence Guide Program on the written expressive performance of fifth grade elementary school students with specific learning disabilities. The method was experimental with a pretest/posttest design and a control group. To conduct this project, 30 female students with specific learning disorders in the fifth grade of Yazd were selected through a multistage cluster sampling method and randomly divided into a control group and an experimental group. The experimental group received 13 sessions of 60-minute training on the Phelps program. Instruments used included the informal writing tests and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale, fifth edition. Data were analyzed using the statistical method of analysis of covariance. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the performances of the experimental and control groups in writting expression skills (P<0.001). Based on the results, the Phelps sentence guide program is effective for students with learning difficulties in Writing stories, letters, and memoirs, and that this method can be used as a therapeutic intervention and recommended to therapists.
