Both children and parents enter a new school year full of expectation and many of those expectations will be met and great successes will abound. But sadly, back to school can be a source of great frustration for our visual students. Sitting still and listening can be hard, especially for kids that need to see, touch and do in order to learn effectively.
The key to prevent summer learning loss for all kids, especially visual learners, is to make learning hands on, make it visual, add lots of art and time to create and above all – make it FUN. Summer is great for messy, creative and experimental activities because everything can be done outside!
