Retaining the Strengths of Visual-Spatial-Learners

Olive Hickmott

2024 Conference

Having worked with neurodivergent students for the past 24 years, it is time to address the questions of how we are educating our visual-spatial-leaners.

It is vital to them, our national and global success, that they retain their exceptional skills of creativity, problem-solving, innovation, intuition and so much more.

These are the skills businesses have been requesting for many years and with the increase in AI, they are even more important.  We need to change the emphasis in school onto their strengths and away from the challenges they experience with the current curriculum.  At the very least, a reframe is necessary to retain and develop their strengths, in a classroom that works for everyone.
