Podcast: Does Your Child’s School Understand?
In episode 27 of Living Life as a Visual Thinker, I answer a parent email about a second grader whose school wanted to have him tested for ADD. First and second grade is the time that most children are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. But many of the same characteristics of visual learners are the same traits that point to an attention deficit. Right brain thinkers can seem a little scattered and jump from one thing to another constantly. The good news is that schools really do have a lot of options for helping children with learning differences. If you are in this situation, be open to ALL the possibilities for helping them be more successful in the classroom.
