The VAK-teaching model enhances your child’s ability to learn more effectively
Understanding your child’s preferred learning style can increase the rate at which they learn. Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic teaching methods are often overlooked by schools where large numbers of children work together and accommodating individual learning styles is not always achievable.
What is a learning style?
Each of us has a natural preference for a way to receive, process and impart information. The way in which we process information is as unique as we are.
VAKS looks at three broad learning styles that we all use.
Visual - learning through seeing
Auditory - learning through listening
Kinesthetic - learning through moving, doing and touching
Some people have a very strong preference, while others will use a blend of all three. There is no right or wrong VAK-learning style.
For many children particularly in the early stages of development, a mixture of all three learning styles is recommended.
