The Right Side of Normal provides some valuable insights for parents of right-brain learners.
While the author says that a right-brain learner may not be ready to read before the right-brain learner is 8 to 10 years old, we have found something different.
We believe your right-brain learner can achieve Success in Month Not Years with the right approach — whether your child is 6, 7, 8 to 10 or older.
What 5 things drive us to the conclusion that right-brain learners can achieve success in months not years even at earlier ages:
1- We have done this with over 2000 right-brain learners of all ages
2- Right-brain learners have 5 common challenges that can limit them and these can be addressed:
– Yes, right-brain learners have trouble with sight words (e.g. but, what, if, except, the etc.), because they do not have a picture for that word
– Right-brain learners have difficulty remembering words they have seen and not mastered
– Right-brain learners can visualize what he or she sees and experiences, but may not have learned how to visualize what he or she reads
– Right-brain learners often skip words or lines when reading, and this is often missed or not addressed
– Right-brain learners can often struggle with attention challenges
3- Parents may be alerted to a problem and some may suggest your child has dyslexia, learning disabilities or should be removed for a gifted program, when in fact your child is a right-brain learner — who may have attention and/or eye teaming issues. Parents have told us they have invested tens of thousands of dollars in well meaning programs without success. Then their right-brain learner was able to achieve the success in months and not years with the right right-brain program
4- When you have the mindset and the tools to achieve Success in Months and Not Years
5- We know it is possible, because we have helped thousands of students to do it. Success in months and not years can be achieved, but it takes
– An informed, empowered and proactive parent
– It takes finding the right assessment for your right-brain learner
– It takes finding the right right-brain program for your child
– It takes discipline to do the follow through
We have seen some incredible turnarounds:
– Students going from the 18th to the 84 percentile
– Going from the 48th to the 95th percentile
– Going from the 60th to the 99th percentile and getting a perfect ACT score
Having said this, we want to be careful to recognize that a right-brain learners IQ can vary from the developmentally delayed range (i.e. under 70) to the very highest IQ. A parent does need to be realistic, but we have seen far too many cases where a teacher of other professional tried to coach parents to be more realistic, when that was not the right approach.
What was needed was a right-brain program that played to the student’s strengths and interests, that identified and address the attention, eye teaming and related issues and that helps you the parent to help your child succeed, in collaboration with teachers, schools and outside professionals.
If you suspect your child is a right-brain learner, we offer three ways to learn more:
– Mira has written a short, informative and empowering book, “Life is a Ball, Do Not put Me in a Box”, that has helped many parents to understand their child’s unique strengths and challenges — in a book written in prose – like Dr. Seuss
– We offer an Assessment for Success that focuses on whether your child is a right-bran learner and what may be holding your child back
– We offer a consult
You can have the book, the Assessment for Success and the consult at no cost — just go to 3D Learner sign-up and put your child on his or her Pathway to Success in Months Not Years
