I was talking to a friend about the HBO movie, Rethinking Dyslexia that aired recently. We had both been very impressed by the movie. I’ve researched and written about dyslexia in relation to being a visual learner, but my friend has first hand experience with a son who is dyslexic. As we talked about Brandon and his learning experiences, I was enormously impressed by the success he’s found in his career because of his perseverance and the ways he learned to make things more visual for himself.
Back to school means back to vocabulary tests. Our visual learners are not too excited about any tests – but vocabulary tests can bring extra anxiety because words are not their native tongue.
I have been driven for many years, in all I do, to find ways to help children be more confident and successful. Writing Being Visual was a long, labor-intensive process, especially for me as a visual learner, but I truly believe that when we understand the way our visual kids think, can help them be more successful. When I hear from parents that have read and applied visual learning techniques, I am enormously grateful to be a part of this important conversation.
This is what one of our reader’s had to say:
This is a never before seen peek into my home office. I wanted to share how I have visually organized my office.
