#beginquote# Hi, Lori, Very interesting to read your post. I work with high school kids (years 7-10, 12 to 15 year olds) with ADHD, dyslexia and in some cases borderline autism. Each class has at least 40% of students who have been suspended or expelled from other schools because of challenging behavior, etc. I also have a one hour primary (aka elementry? ..7-11 year olds)class once a week. Some students are on Ritalin or similar, but most are not. I use a system of colouring the notes on the lines and spaces (treble clef only, to start) so that G is green, B is blue, and I let the kids pick the other colours. I start only with crotchets, and go no lower than one ledger line. After the notes in this area are working, I expand the range, and introduce rests, dotted notes,etc. Works like a dream. ..pass me that treble clef, Mildred. #endquote#
