In it, she details how she uses color the help her "right-brained students" succeed. Many of these students have ADHD and/or learning disabilities. She explains further by saying:

"...a right-brained child, who sees the world in color and pictures, craves and needs color to succeed in an academic setting. Without it, he loses interest in the topic at hand and slowly fades away."

She offers tips on using color to help students in the areas of math, spelling, reading, and more. You can read the entire article on ADD A to Z.
