7 Ways To Spot Your Child’s Learning Style And Help Them Succeed In Life

As a writer, I love sharing helpful parenting information. So I’ve prepared a list of learning styles that may help you rediscover your child, and positively affect them, so they can flourish in the future.

Physical learningA kinesthetic learner is when a child learns through moving and doing something. They usually have a difficult time staying still for extended periods, and they might tend to break things in order to comprehend them. They may choose to create things with plasticine instead of writing or jotting down information. When it comes to reading, your child may choose a book that has objects coming out of it, like small entrances that open or fuzzy materials that can be felt.

Spatial learningVisual learners are best at learning through watching just as the word itself states. This style may be considered the most common learning style because teachers often use this technique in classrooms. Kids grasp the teacher’s body language and gestures to study, and are also very creative, thinking in pictures. These kind of children have their preferences, they like to scribble when they listen to a lecture, they write down their tasks for the day, and may always remember visual details rather than written texts.

Auditory learningThis is a type of learning where the learners prefer studying something while hearing it out loud or speaking out loud. The best thing you can do for your child is to motivate them to keep talking. They may often talk to themselves, remember people by their names (not faces), and can be easily disturbed.

For instance, if you want your child to learn how to spell something, have them say it to you. You may also tape your kid reading a school task and then have them listen to themselves, as this can help them learn better.

Interpersonal learningKids with an interpersonal learning style, also known as social, work best by talking with other people. These kids love to spend time with their friends and engage well in group activities. They also like to talk about what they’ve learned with their classmates and are very good at understanding them. However, it’s important for your child to know that learning independently is crucial, too. That’s why, if your child has a project assigned to them, you can try to work on it together by having your kid do half of it while you do the other half, then share each other’s work.

Intrapersonal learningThis type of learning style is also called solitary, and it is contrary to social learning. This is where the kids prefer learning by themselves and are best at it. They enjoy studying in a quiet spot and are highly conscious of themselves. It may be best to motivate them to use a journal for support and also give them their “alone time.” But since they may find it hard to introduce themselves to others, you should try to encourage them to do so by slowly surrounding themselves with other people.

Linguistic learningRemember that the verbal learning style is generally muddled with the auditory one, but even though they have some resemblance, they are not very similar. These kids enjoy both hearing and reading words. They really love words and are great at learning new languages. Their strengths may most likely be writing and reading. When given instructions, try to encourage your child to write frequently, and also introduce them to new words every day.

Logical learningIf your child loves math class, then they may be a logical learner. These kids love to look at different patterns and be organized through logic. They love to see numbers and don’t really enjoy reading a lot, they may prefer to get right to the point. They’re ambitious and curious, but may have a hard time with creative writing. Try to teach them to make a list of specific dates for history class, or break down information into graphics or tables.
