Did you know that children learn best from classrooms which are fun and interesting!
Do teachers have time to make learning fun, given their top heavy curriculum?
According to one expert who is a neurologist and teacher, "when students are engaged and motivated and there is little or no stress", information flows through to the higher centres of learning in the brain.
In this manner, students can "achieve higher levels of cognition", as the brain can make better neural connections which help consolidate learning.
So, which learning styles are fun for children with ADHD, you might ask?
Let me reiterate…
- some children need to move to learn, so why not help your child learn their timetables whilst they are bouncing on a trampoline,
- some children need to touch things to learn, so why not help your child learn their spelling words by making them out of play dough.
