Supporting High School and Beyond Learning
In this video, Dr. Rebecca Mannis, a Certified Learning Specialist, talks about ways that parents of high schoolers can better identify and address their child’s learning styles and challenges and therefore support reading, writing and comprehension at home. As a child moves toward high school, the educational demands will increase to include reading to learn and systemize on demand. These skills are derived from the frontal lobe (part of the central nervous system) which isn’t finished developing until adolescence. Dr. Mannis outlines several strategies for children who have difficulty with complicated language or skimming texts, and also touches on how you and your child can determine what type of University might be a good match, based on his or her individual learning style.
In addition to writing many eduction articles, Dr. Mannis is the executive director of Ivy Prep. She is a certified learning specialist and holds her doctorate in child development. Dr. Mannis consults to schools and corporations about learning disabilities, remediation, individualized instruction and adaptive technology.
