Learning Differences - Effective Home Schooling (4 of 6)

Every child has a unique learning style, so as their teacher it’s important to recognize what your child’s strengths and weaknesses are. To avoid fighting them during a lesson, you need to identify the path of least resistance and determine creative ways to strengthen their weaknesses. One of the biggest challenges you may encounter when homeschooling is how to approach teaching a child with learning differences. Learning differences are very common among students, with about 10% of the population affected.

A table of three top learning differences are below, along with the characteristics of each type and techniques to approach this style of learning. Some examples of effective techniques include breaking up work into manageable portions, using an oral approach, and repetition.
