In children between the ages of four and seven, the right brain is developing rapidly. For this reason, any child under the age of 7 tends to be a predominantly visual learner. Visual learners have powerful right brain hemispheres and an ability to learn multi-dimensional images in a holistic fashion.
When these right brain, visual learners become beginning readers, they benefit most from a multisensory approach which allows them to rely on their amazing visual capacities for learning and remembering. The relatable images in Eyewords activate the right hemisphere of the brain and engage a young child’s natural inclination towards learning holistically.
“Unless the right hemisphere is activated and engaged, attention is low and learning is poor.”
– Dr. Jerre Levy
