I've been doing a bit of research on learning styles, and stumbled across something I found to be eye-opening for me. I think my 16 yr old DD is a twice gifted, visual-spatial learner. Also, she fits an underachiever fairly well, but that's neither here nor there, although I'm sure it's something we need to take into account. This is a kid who can give me the layout of the apartment we lived in, and tell me what the neighbor's house looked like, when she was 18 mo old.
On the other hand, she has some kind of visual tracking problem (according to a private school resource specialist in the long ago past), and she supposedly has ADD. I'm thinking of seeing if I can get her tested by private educational specialists.
In the meantime, she has plans to go to college, and wants to brush up on her math. She hasn't touched a math book in years, and she has a lot of trouble with "easier" concepts and math drill, than she does with more complicated concepts like algebra.
Since she is a Visual-Spatial learner, and generally LD, I need to find some way to teach her math in a way that sticks and makes sense to her. Does anyone know of ways, methods, or resources out there, for these conditions?
