Here is a revolutionary book that offers parents hundreds of practical ways to help influence, encourage, and--most of all--maximize their child's learning ability. Whether they are preschoolers or high school teenagers, children can excel at almost any skill, and this book shows you practical ways to help them. Over twenty years ago, Dr. Lauren Bradway discovered that all children have specific learning styles--that is, they use one of three distinct ways to grasp and remember information. Some learn best through visual stimulation, others are more receptive to sound and language, and still others gain information best through touch. In How to Maximize Your Child's Learning Ability, Dr. Bradway first shows you how to determine your child's inherent style. She then aids you in carefully selecting the toys, activities, and educational strategies that help reinforce the talents and traits your child was born with, as well as encourage those skills that come less easily. The result? A happier, more self-assured child with greatly enhanced learning skills. How to Maximize Your Child's Learning Ability provides the basic concepts that support Dr. Bradway's techniques, simple tests to help you uncover your child's individual learning style, and itemized lists of materials and tactics that can help you supercharge your child's learning skills. Here are all the tools you'll need to start your child on the road to a successful future.
