How Does Our Style of Learning Matter in School & in Life?

The one subject we don’t study—ourselves—may be the basis for success in studying all the others. ~The Learning Success™ Institute


As parent educators, many of us have seen the differences in disposition—one child needs to move, move, move every minute during the day, another’s need is to gaze out the window, and yet another who needs to take apart and investigate every toy, gadget, or object s/he picks up.

How do we accommodate all of these different dispositions and ways of learning? It seems an impossible task for teachers. Our teachers are here to help you personalize your child’s curriculum and learning plan so that every child can succeed. All of us at the school benefit from recognizing that one size does not fit all.

So who benefits from a personalized approach? Students, parents, and teachers do.


·         Parents have access to a caring and supportive staff to assist them in choosing curriculum that works with their child in mind.

·         The school provides ongoing workshops, easily accessed via Internet, to learn more about how to customize curriculum to fit the needs of any child. Is your child auditory verbal or auditory listening? What is the difference between a skill and a subject and why does it matter? What curriculum choices meet the needs of the spatially gifted child? Or what do you do to engage a reluctant writer? 

·         Parents have access to the LearningSuccess™ profile, a blueprint to your child’s individual learning style. But more than that, parents also have access to the learning styles consultants who can work personally with you and your child.

·         The LearningSuccess™ Institute reminds us that it is success that leads to more success. Whether your child needs to “see it,” “hear it,” or “experience it,” developing and using product outcomes ideas that really work is a key ingredient to ensure that your child “gets it!”

We must stop drawing attention to what people cannot do and start emphasizing what they can do~ Willis and Hodson
