My free time is currently spent exploring the worlds of visual-spatial learners, right-brained thinkers, global learners, and dyslexia. It is somewhat difficult for me to apply a label to my child but the following paragraphs do describe my youngest extremely well:
"Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. We are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because we think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for us to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words."
-Dyslexia the Gift
DDA goes on to say, "We can learn to read, write and study efficiently when we use methods geared to our unique learning style."
Visual Spatial Resource asks these questions:
-Does your child remember what is seen
but forget what is heard?
-Does your child have a vivid imagination?
-Can your child visualize objects from
-Does your child enjoy solving puzzles and mazes?
Does any of this sound familiar to you? I am wondering what our CM-education will look like as we continue on this fascinating voyage.
