During lock-down I have been creating short videos of the key visual skills to improve literacy and numeracy for visual creative students. There are only 4 vital topics: reducing anxiety, finding strengths, visualising words and numbers.
As I know that parents have very limited time, some are as short as 5 minutes some a bit longer. Download the attached single pages and choose which Youtubes best meet your needs. You can even let your child try them out for themselves – learning visually is fun and matches how many learn best. Students can change rapidly when they get the right strategy that matches their skills.
Here is a very brief summary of the material attached. This vital knowledge is not just for your child / student but for you too, to understand the key visual skills they have missed.

You can read more about these visualisation techniques and more case studies in the book The Elephants in The Classroom – uncovering every student’s natural power of mental imagery to enhance learning available here , and also from Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Kindle.
