What is your child’s motivation to learn?
Education starts from birth as we try to figure out how to eat, crawl, and overcome challenges. For the toddler they are motivated to get out of the crib and see the world. Formal education is through guided instruction to help problem solve real life demands like reading, communicating, and logic. Formal education wants to promote a students desire to expand and explore the world.
Though sometimes the educational institution expects its student to learn in a specific way that results in apathy and behavior problems in school. These different aspects of education are considered in determining why your child is having difficulty in school.
How are your neurons working?
Sometimes the student is challenged by their internal ability to effectively process. The question is not whether you want to learn but rather what problems are stopping learning. If this is you, we can help.
