    “I wish I had a camera on my forehead and you had a screen on yours. Then I could show you what I am thinking.” That statement might sound strange to most of us, but that's how visual-spatial learners think.

    The traditional classroom setting defeats a visual-spatial learner, who may also be twice exceptional (2E), ADHD, and/or Autistic. When your classroom is designed to cater to their unique needs, not only will your visual-spatial learner's potential be unlocked, every student in your class will reap the rewards.
