Why do some children learn easily in the school setting and other children struggle? Are there really a large percentage of school children who have diverse learning disabilities that causes this struggle? Or is the solitary scope and sequence offered in schools not enough diversity to cover all the types of learners? Why are most children who are labeled as learning disabled also right-brained learners? Cindy Gaddis discovered through educating seven right-brained children that there is a right side of normal.
For parents and educators who want to break free from the “broken child” mentality, Gaddis offers a bold vision for living and learning joyfully with right-brained, creative children. There’s an epidemic of diagnosing learning disabilities today. Home educator Cindy Gaddis believes it signals a mismatch between the learning needs of right-brained children and the educational environment in most schools. Understanding and honoring the natural learning path for right-brained children is the key to their educational success.
“Creative learners have amazing strengths that emerge when they are placed in an appropriate setting,” says Gaddis. Too many children are shamed for the very traits that define who they are. This book helps parents and teachers stop trying to fit right-brained learners into a left-brained mold, and instead create space for them to flourish.
Gaddis offers parent-proven models and concrete suggestions. Combined with a solid review of experts in the field of creative, right-brained learners, she provides a range of helpful tools for frustrated parents and teachers.
