A DIFFERENT WAY TO LEARN
The Child’s Perspective
Capture my MOTIVATION to LEARN!

•        I LOVE to be reinforced, but the usual “social reinforcers” may not be meaningful to
me in the   beginning.

I am a Visual Learner

•        My visual channel” is stronger than my auditory “channel”.

•        Visual and concrete experiences help me
UNDERSTAND the meaning of my
experiences.

I Prefer Consistent, Predictable and Organized Routines

•        Keep it the same RIGHT FROM THE START

•        When things change, please SHOW ME WHAT TO EXPECT

I Understand and Process my environment in a unique way

•        Sometimes, I organize and remember things in “CHUNKS” or “Wholes” and have a
hard time understanding that the separate “parts” mean.

•        It’s sometimes
hard for me to learn by watching what others around me are doing
and saying.

•        Since I’m not always sure what the “
important” information is in my experiences, I
sometimes focus on small “
bits” of information that may not even be relevant.

•        I almost always have a hard time processing auditory information. For me to
understand, please
SHOW me what you mean!

•        I’m not a fan of “
multi-tasking”. It’s hard for me to attend to information coming form
several “
Channels” at the same time.

One thing at a time please!
•        I learn best when skills are broken down into “bite-sized” pieces.
