Your child learned how to walk. He or she learned how to talk.
But did your child learn how to learn?
I am ashamed to say that I had been teaching for many years before I realized that children need to learn how to learn!I, like many other teachers, had assumed that children either knew how to learn or could figure it out by themselves. How wrong we were!Learning doesn’t just happen. Learning only happens when a child uses a set of basic, foundational, vital skills to work through the learning process.Think of something you know how to do. Now think of the skills you needed to be able to do it! Without those skills it is almost impossible to learn anything!Many children know how to learn. They have picked up and developed the foundational skills that lead to learning. But many do not.For these children, who may be missing one or more of these skills, learning becomes a struggle. And it will continue to be a struggle until they develop the skills they need.One of the main reasons bright children struggle to learn is because they are missing one or more of these vital learning skills. That is all! They are not lazy, they are not stupid, they are not poor students. They are bright kids who can’t because learn they don’t know how!And all it takes to get these students back on track is to discover which learning skill they need to develop and help them develop it!That is what this Learning to Learn© program does. It discovers the skill or skills your child needs to develop and provides you with ways to help develop them.Couldn’t be easier!How do I know it works? Because I have used this program with many parents and, as long as they are open to understanding the need for foundational learning skills, they have been able to make enormous changes to their child’s ability to learn.
