Does she learn well by:

  • Working alone? Encourage projects—many independent workers excel at them. Have her strengthen language skills by keeping a journal.

  • Working with others? Suggest she gather some friends into a study group. Sharing ideas about schoolwork will help her remember and understand it.

  • Using words? If so, she has a strong advantage at school, since reading, writing and speaking are her strengths. Have her also ask her teachers for ways to use reading and writing to do better in nonverbal subjects, such as math.

  • Using logic and numbers? If so, she is probably good at math and at figuring things out. She can strengthen her verbal skills by reading, writing, and talking about subjects of interest to her.

  • Listening to music? Have her try singing her vocabulary words or replacing the words of familiar songs with information she needs to remember.
