Someone is shy

Meliesa hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of learning models that exist outside of traditional educational institutions?
There's a book called "how to get your child off the refrigerator and onto learning" It's excellent. Games and play-time are excellent educational methods. There is a homeschool curriculum called "Moving Beyond the Page" that is activity-based. I loved it. Also, you can download my free report on parenting the bouncy or distractible child at www.focalpointwenatchee.com. Lots of tips for how to set up your classroom and do things without the traditional standard-based way of thinking.

I do think, however, that kids will often avoid areas that are difficult or challenging for them. Providing incentives for them to work those areas can help them to find a way to overcome challenges. Kids simply do not have the maturity to understand at aged 8 that these skills will be necessary in adulthood and that they should do it. We, as adults can see that, and it is our responsibility to help them.

Hello, I have a learning center and have been working with kids in Central WA with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and other learning disabilities for over ten years. You can find my free report on Parenting the ADD child here: www.focalpointwenatchee.com. I have lots of simple tips for parents on dealing with bouncy and distractible kids in education. I developed a method to teach the math facts visually -- fast, effective, long-term results. The question is -- how do you get a new method out in the education world? Hard to find answers to that.
