Understanding Your Child’s Learning Method.

a2Your child’s five senses feed information about himself and his environment to his mind which allows him his experience of reality. The information flows into his subconscious mind where is it processed as internal representations. These representations offer him a memory of the information. His subconscious mind creates behavioural and emotional responses with regard to this information dependent on what the information means to him. It also determines what similar information will mean to him in the future.

Of the five senses, three (seeing, hearing and feeling) will be used to teach him. Of these three senses, one will naturally become his preferred system for learning. It is my opinion that a child can become equally proficient in all three as learning systems. The younger a child is the less rigid this structure is and the easier it is to develop them more equally.

Seeing (Visual).

If your child’s primary learning method is seeing then his information is predominantly stored in pictures. This means that when he thinks about something he will first become aware of the pictures developed from that thought or memory.

Hearing (Auditory).

If your child’s primary learning method is hearing then he predominantly stores the sounds first. This means that when he thinks about something he will first become aware of the sounds developed from that thought or memory.

Feeling (Kinaesthetic).

If your child’s primary learning method is feeling then he predominantly stores how he felt and/or what he was physically doing or touching. This means that when he thinks about something he will first become aware of the feelings or sensations developed from that thought or memory.
