Critical and creative thinking skills for children with ADHD / Linda Wheeler and Anne Vize.
Adapted from a book, "Thinking skills - special needs : ADHD and communication difficulties", by Linda Wheeler (MA Education, 2012). "The focus of the book is specifically on the teaching and learning of critical and creative thinking skills for children with ADHD and/or other learning difficulties. The National Curriculum describes a wide range of interrelated elements which combine to form the critical and creative thinking capability, and which can challenge these children in particular ways: inquiring - identifying, exploring and clarifying information; generating innovative ideas and possibilities; reflecting on thinking, actions and processes; analysing, synthesising and evaluating information. The tasks in this book are ideal for use with smaller groups of around six children, but can be adapted for both smaller and larger group sizes. Where possible, they apply to real-life situations to make them more meaningful when relating them to the thinking skills." - Back cover.
