I realize I am responding to this really late in the
year. However, does your son happen to be right-
brained? I'm asking because I was watching my
daughter struggle with learning. She did terrible
on tests and couldn't seem to comprehend what she
was reading enough to go back and answer questions
on what she had just read. She couldn't even find
the information. Anyway, I happened on the HSLDA
website an article that said "Do you have a child
who is working too hard to learn?". I read the
article and it was like reading about my daughter.
It explained that right-brained children need lots
of visual clues like colors and odd shapes in order
to get the information into their right brain. They
don't remember things by having it go into their
left brain and then be transferred into their right
brain for long term memory storage like most people.
Sounds weird, I know, but I started doing test study
sheets for my daughter by writing out the
information she needed to know (with additional
information I thought was important) in bright
colored markers. A different color for each
important point. She then studied that sheet. I
have watched her go from struggling to get a C to
getting mostly A's, B's, and C's on her tests. She
even has told me which colors aren't easy for her to
study. That is the premise behind the article.
They said that you needed to make the information
they are to learn stand out in some way so their
right brain can catch it and remember/store the
information. Recently I found out from talking to
her that she even "thinks" in color...she has a
different color in her mind for each hour of the
day. Fascinating!! It has made all the difference
in her self-esteem too. She no longer feels like
she is stupid. She realizes she has been created
uniquely and its perfectly awesome! Hope this
helps. Daphney
