“Learning can only happen when a child is interested. If he’s not interested, it’s like throwing marshmallows at his head and calling it eating.” ~ Katrina Gutleben

On Right-Brained Learning

What is a right brained learner? 

As my friend Cindy Gaddis puts it: 

Does your child have a highly developed imagination and spend hours doing one or more of the following: computers/video games, building/electronics, art/ photography, theater/showmanship, fashion/sewing, puzzles/mazes, cooking/ gardening, or music/dance? Yet, does your child struggle with math facts, learning to read, or spelling, or is labeled with ADD, dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, gifted, or Asperger’s? Do people consider your child smart, but lazy, living below his potential, or she resists your teaching methods? You may have a right-brained learner.

Read The Natural Development for Right-Brained Children and see if you recognize your child. If you do, I've compiled a resource guide with more information: Right-Brained Learning FAQs.
