Children affected by deficits which impair learning are usually considered in relation to their limits. However, it seems that at least a skill, namely, creativity, is preserved, or even enhanced, in such cases. The goal of the workshop is to present some practical activities involving divergent thinking which can be proposed both to foster the creative potential of those children and to make school tasks more motivating and effective since they rely on a  creative attitude.
