Teaching Style

Holistic Auditory Learners: Hear Auditory learners would rather listen to things being explained than read about them. Reciting information out loud and having music in the background may be a common study method. Other noises may become a distraction resulting in a need for a relatively quiet place. Visual Learners: See Visual learners learn best by looking at graphics, watching a demonstration, or reading. For them, it’s easy to look at charts and graphs, but they may have difficulty focusing while listening to an explanation. Kinesthetic Learners: Touch Kinesthetic learners process information best through a “hands-on” experience. Actually doing an activity can be the easiest way for them to learn. Sitting still while studying may be difficult, but writing things down makes it easier to understand. Types of Learning Styles: What Everybody Should Know Although most people use a combination of the three learning styles, they usually have a clear preference for one. Knowing and understanding the types of learning styles is important for students of any age. It is advantageous for students to understand their type of learning style early on so that homework and learning may become easier and less stressful in the future. Although it may be tempting to stick with what works, it’s important to practice and train the other types of learning styles early on so that, as he grows, the child can utilize the other types just as effectively. A well-balanced pupil, an intelligent child is able to develop all three types of learning styles. Just because a child has a dominant learning style doesn’t mean that the other types can’t be improved. Having just one dominant learning style, and relying on that style only, can debilitate a child’s true potential. There are many different ways to train the different types of learning styles, but it ultimately comes down to training the cognitive skills. Cognitive skills are the foundational building blocks of each learning style. Without properly trained cognitive skills, a child isn’t able to use or take advantage of the other learning styles effectively. At LearningRx, we offer a cognitive skills assessment to find the areas in which a child needs improvement. We also offer training that goes to the root of the problem instead of working on the symptoms. If you would like more information on how we can help your child’s individual needs, contact a local LearningRx Center near you.
