7 SECRETS TO ENGAGED ONLINE LEARNING FOR STUDENTS WITH ADHD; TIP #6
Tip #6 in ADDitude's piece on "7 Secrets to Engaged Online Learning for Students with ADHD" is about drawing.

There's something about feeling as though they're "receiving credit" for the visual brainstorm that may help them take the next step.
