AbstractThe Current research aims to know the impact of concept maps on the achievement and lack of attention by special education pupils. The researcher used the experimental design of both experimental and control groups . The sample consisted of fourth grade pupils special education class in Nineveh governorate center for the academic year (2010-2011). The sample consisted of (18) pupils divided into two groups: (8)in the experimental and (10) in control group. The researcher made Grammar lesson plans for both groups, a test of (20) items, and depended on lack of attention scale prepared by Al-Ubaidi (1999). Validity of both tools were approved through a presenting them to, and the stability was found by using kodur - Richardson formula (20), for achievement test stability which reached (0.90) whereas half division was used to measure lack of attention reading (0.93) which is considered good . The experiment was applied, after finishing the experiment, tests were done on both groups using (T-test) of two independent samples. The results showed statistically significant differences between the means of the experimental group using concept maps and the means of the control group using the traditional method in achievement and in favor of the experimental group and a change in lack of attention in favor of the experimental group also .Thus, The researcher recommended the use of concept maps in teaching special education pupils and suggested initiating a similar study in science methodology .
