Knowing the learning style of a child can help you whether you are a parent, grandparent, or teacher. Each child comes into this world preprogrammed to learn from a different point of view.
A child content to lay on a blanket or sit still is many times a Visual Learner, taking in their world through their eyes. They are sometimes ignored because they can so easily entertain themselves.
A child who wants to be talked to or listens to whatever music or noise is in the room is usually an Auditory Learner, using their ears to hear what we have to tell them.
A child who wants to constantly be on the move whether by you bouncing or their own movements is usually a Kinesthetic Learner , picking up learning through their movements and finding out about the world.
So much more is involved, and it is an exciting and fascinating study.
