These are strategies which will help not only special children, but also quick learners improve on their writing skills. One of the greatest issues faced in the field of education is the lake of precise and accurate instructions. In many cases, even mature adults are not able to frame instructions and questions accurately, even in corporate meetings. The idea of creating a mind map or training special children to creat flow charts, in effect creating a pictorial/spacial depiction of abstruse concepts can be of great help. Mind maps help students organise ideas and thought processes in a proper flow. Also it would be a good idea to give time markers, sequencers, and labels before hand to students who can then start filling in the gaps.Somehow, I feel that these strategies will help everyone, not just those with ADHD!

Very cool that people are taking their heads out of the sand and starting to use forward thinking to address an old issue.
