Learning Styles

"There is no good or bad learning style; each enables that person to learn. However, many parents and teachers do not understand and, therefore, do not acknowledge children's diverse learning patterns. When those adults disparage how certain children try to learn, they inadvertently encourage those youngsters to study in the wrong way (for the youngster). This scenario is particularly accurate for many talented youngsters whose learning style preferences also differ from those of other learners." by Rita Dunn, Karen Burke & Janet Whitely, What Do You Know About Learning Style? A Guide for Parents of Gifted Children
