Subject: visual-spatial learner/ high school homeschooling

My son, 14, seems to fit the "visual-spatial learner" description, offered by Linda Silverman at her website. He learns visually, and does poorly with anything sequential. He is a holistic learner (whole-to-part learner). He is dysgraphic and has trouble getting thoughts on paper; it's a real struggle because he has to visualize what he wants to write. Two books: Unicorns are Real and Right-Brained Children in a Left-Brained World have been very helpful.I am looking for any suggestions for his homeschooling. Keystone is not working out because it requires too much writing of essays. He is so bright, but these problems are getting me mind-boggled. He is a whiz at the computer.

Inspiration software has gotten raves from some of the experienced teachers/tutors on these boards. It provides visual organization templates for writing. I plan to use it this summer with my 10yo dyslexic daughter.
