Tips & Tools
Going back to school can be the source of nervousness and anxiety for both you and your visual learner. Neither of you know what the classroom setting has in store. There are so many questions going through your heads. Will the new teacher understand that your child needs more visual clues and hands on learning to grasp a subject? Does this school or district apply a lot of weight to standardized tests? What are the teaching methods and styles being used? And, so many more.
I have great news! By using these three simple steps, you can ease the tension and help yourselves feel more comfortable with the new situation and in control of your child’s education.

Is your creative, intelligent, vibrant child struggling in school? Did you have a similar experience when you were in school? You or your child may be visual learners. In a test heavy education system, more and more children are underachieving, feeling lost and misunderstood. Because, schools are focused on teaching left-brain auditory learners and our right-brain visual kids are not getting what they need to succeed.
In Being Visual, Bette Fetter, the founder of Young Rembrandts, discusses strategies to increase your visual learner’s success in school, identifying how…
– To use pictures to improve grades
– To use visual study techniques
– To use effective writing strategies
– To apply visual methods for students with ADD, dyslexia and autism
– Why drawing, doodling and imagery improves learning
– How art improves education outcomes
Along with stimulating and developing the right side of the brain, art, specifically Young Rembrandts, helps develop the visual aptitude students rely on to learn effectively.
Getting good grades is important for kids, parents and educators. Young Rembrandts programs increase a child’s academic performance by supplementing & improving on many of their core learning skills. Visual literacy is a major component of this – the ability to interpret, negotiate and make meaning from information presented visually or from a picture.
YR students’ academic performance is also increased by way of confidence and persistence – excelling in this classroom makes it easier to try and excel in their academics.
- Stimulates right side of the brain
- Develops visual aptitude
