Learning differences

People ask where do learning differences come from and there are labels such as, learning disabilities or dyslexia or attention deficit disorder. Every single human being has a matrix of skills. Somethings they're really efficient at, some they're medium at and some they're inefficient at. And that is just being a human being. And so if we can just understand how we learn, if we can understand what the mathematics problem or the writing skill is needed and then we can also say this child is really strong in their memory skills or not, then we can teach so that you can learn almost everything. It's understanding what you have to learn, how the brain works and how as a teacher can I create a combination of all of those skills to really have a successful learning experience for every person.
