Does your child jump all over the place when telling a story? When given a particular task or activity, these students look to the end to figure out what the finished product should look like. They often proceed to do things in their own way. As students who learn differently, they generally learn from whole-to-part, vs their counterparts who learn sequentially, or part to whole.
So what are the consequences for these “whole to part” learners as it relates to reading? They have difficulty connecting the audio to the visual and have not mastered a pattern or sequence for integrating sounds and letters. For a child with sequencing issues, learning to read like everyone else is difficult.
