Creative Writing_Planning Skills_Level Two_Structured Plan E
Two plans which encourage a holistic approach - writing is not required

I teach this exercise to children aged 8 through to adults.  I also teach a similar form of Structured Plan which is suitable for younger children aged 4 to 7 years (listed under Level One of Creative Writing Planning Skills).  This is a fun exercise which
we do as often as required.  The student chooses from two different diagrams which each help the dyslexic or dyspraxic to plan a story in a holistic rather than linear style. The image-based approach also particularly suits dyslexics and dyspraxics.  Again this exercise encourages original and creative thinking.  It can help to break down barriers towards writing, and is a therapeutic exercise to use with the dyslexic or dyspraxic who is nervous of writing, lacking self-confidence and self-esteem
or who feels frustrated at not being able to express his or her thoughts on paper.
