Does your child feel bad about this? Well they don’t have be. They might just be another kind of learner. In their case, a visual learner. Here are some helpful study tips for visual learners.
One thing to do as a visual learner is to pay attention to visual aids that come with the information that they are supposed to learn. Modern classrooms often incorporate charts and graphic organizers for learning. Even textbooks nowadays have colored illustrations of concepts discussed in a couple of pages.
To further maximize the function of these graphics, tweak them to further suit your child’s style. You can understand and retain information better if they can organize ideas using these. For example, your child can use concept maps to understand and remember the relationship of things. You can also create charts to organize data in a manner that makes more sense to your child.
