It has become widely accepted that not all children learn alike. Some grasp information best by reading, while others learn better through listening or discovering concepts in a hands-on fashion.

Their “learning style profile” takes into account a child’s talents, interests, preferred learning environment, and disposition, as well as the three more familiar modes.
