Many kids who struggle in school can be helped by simply speaking their language. Their processing language, that is. You know that kid who comes to your desk and asks a question, only to answer it himself as soon as the words are out of his mouth? You’ve got a verbal processor on your hands. What about the kid who shifts his weight from foot to foot during a presentation or an oral book report? Probably a kinetic learner. He has to move in order to process.
There are many ways to unlock students’ learning potentials, and finding out how they learn best is one of the keys. Some types of processing include: visual, verbal, auditory, and kinetic. Those are the main types I will explore with your child.
