Three moms were talking about their experiences with a Boca Raton Tutor, Kumon and 3D Learner.
A Boca Raton Tutor, Kumon and 3D Learner often see the same kids, but we offer very different services.
The first mom said her child had made good progress with a Boca Raton Tutor.
Kumon is a very logicial and sequential approach to learning. When it works. the students master the relevant skills and all is well. The second mom said had tried a traditional Boca Raton Tutor and it had not worked. She tried Kumon and it had not worked either — she was still at a loss
The 3rd mom had tried a Boca Raton Tutor for both her kids without success. Then she tried Kumon for both kids. It worked for her daughter who was a logical, sequential and auditory learner, but she had seen no progress with her son.
Then she saw the following 5 key questions:
– Does your child remember places visited, even from years ago?
– Does your child learn best when he or she sees and experiences information?
– Does your child lose focus when he or she is bored or frustrated?
– Does your child skip words and lines when reading?
– Are your child’s reading comprehension and test scores lower than you would have expected?
The mom continued, we had my child assessed, not for a disability, but for whether my son learned differently and whether he had an eye-teaming and/or attention challenge.
It turned out he had all three.
Then, he was able to significantly improve his reading comprehension because they:
– Taught the way he learned
– They confirmed and addressed the attention and eye teaming issues
– They helped me to be the coach and advocate my child needed.
The mom who was still frustrated was a little bit of a quandry. I know my child has an uncanny memory for places visited and that my child often loses focus when she is frustrated or bored, but I really do not know if she learns differently. It sounds like the Right Side of Normal article I read about right-brain learners. Is it?
Your child might right-brained if you worry about…
… why your child resists being taught.
There are probably many reasons for this. The top reason is that you are probably not teaching in the way the child learns. We tend to teach like we were taught, as found in school, which supports left-brained learning practices. Right-brained children have a very different path and process to learning. In actuality, right-brained children love to learn, but hate to be taught. The process of learning taps into their creative energy; the products of learning often fall flat.
The mom then did our on-line assessment at our 3D Learner Home Page, and it turned out her daughter learned differently and had an attention issue — but did not have an eye teaming issue — no two children are the same
We have found that right-brain learners can struggle for years, even with excellent tutors and learning centers, because they learn differently and have attention and/or eye-teaming issues
Mira Halpert has both written a book about kids that learn differently and developed a Success Assessment that looks if your child learns differently and has an attention, eye teaming or related issues.
