Why are Cognitive Skills Important for Learning?
Have you ever wondered how strong your memory skill is? How some things seem stick to your son's memory better--like lyrics to a song, but not the science topic you just taught him? Learn how memory works in kids and how important working memory is.
Attention is like a funnel: we take in only select information among everything our senses pick up. Undoubtedly, attention is vital when it comes to learning. This article explains how kids pay attention and how to help them pay attention to the important stuff.
Notice how some kids absorb or process information faster than others? Often, their mental processing speed plays a role here. Get more insight into this important cognitive skill by looking at what could possibly happen in a day in the life of a child with slow processing speed.
Watch a child figure out Lego instructions, or navigate
coordinates in a treasure map. Visual processing is one skill at work here. It is an extremely valuable skill as we use it in nearly everything we do. Know more about how visual-spatial processing affects a child's ability to read, do math and sports.
Auditory processing--the skill that the brain uses when processing sounds--plays a huge role in listening and reading comprehension. When underdeveloped, it greatly impacts a child's day-to-day life. Here's a closer look on a condition called Auditory Processing Disorder.
Regardless of age, we face situations requiring us to use our logic and reasoning skill such as problem-solving, doing math, debating, organizing projects or structuring our writing . Here are two articles explaining why concrete reasoning is the foundation of learning and why children need to use abstract reasoning in school.
If you'd like to know how strong your child's cognitive skills are, book a cognitive skills assessment. Read up on what to expect.
