Dyslexia and Your Visual Learner – -Consider Different Approaches
This Infographic by www.webmd.com describes strengths and weaknesses of people
who may be diagnosed with dyslexia, and who we label as a visual learner.
If your child has dyslexia and continues to struggle to understand what he or she is reading, it’s likely because of two or three reasons:
- Your child is a visual learner; and
- Your child is not being taught the way he or she learns best
- There are unidentified and/or untreated processing challenges
Between 80% and 90% of people with dyslexia are visual learners who learn differently. In a nutshell, visual learners are big-picture thinkers and creative problem solvers. They are the likes of Leonardo DiVinci, Albert Einstein, Ludwig van Beethoven, George Washington, and Thomas Edison. They are also the minds that change the world.
At 3D Learner, we empower students by calling them visual learners, because of the unique abilities and creative talent they possess.
It is true that there are intensities of abilities and weaknesses, but over the past 20 years we have learned that embracing students’ innate abilities and teaching them how to use them to be successful in learning and in school, is far more engaging and successful.
Identifying those strengths is the first thing that we do. Having students discover and understand HOW they learn best is a journey. A journey WE EXPLORE together. Parents need to be an integral part of this journey to support and help their kids succeed.
3D Learners need to build and experience language. Words are not just sounds; they are pictures, meanings and emotions! Many words have multiple meanings, and observing students make those connections makes learning fun for them. Sometimes for the 1st time.
Learning to read is a complicated process and a relative new skill in human evolution. 3D Learners are visual learners. They “see” the big picture. They are what the author Thom Hartmann refers to as “The hunters”. They visually scan their world and look for patterns. They like to create their own rules.
The first step is to understand how your child learns best. Our Success Assessment sheds valuable light on this. Our system works because we focus on the attention, memory and visual processing challenges that impact all right-brain learners. When a student gets the right training and the right support, remarkable breakthroughs can take place.
Discover if your child is lucky enough to be a visual learner: Take the 3D Assessment for immediate feedback on whether your child learns differently and if he or she appears to have attention, eye-teaming and/or other related issues. If so, we can help.
