Because the left and right hemispheres of the brain are mirror images of each other, each specializing in something different, it makes sense that the educational paths for left- and right-brained learners are opposites of each other.
The time frame that schools utilize in teaching various subjects aligns with the left-brained learner stages of learning. I have identified the time frames of three stages of learning, depicted in the charts below. This chapter introduces the function of each stage while Chapter Seven provides details for the content and subject expression.
The first stage of learning is called the Foundation Stage because it focuses on the universal gifts and strengths of each learner see Chapter Five. Left-brained learners are two-dimensional thinkers who focus on symbolic and word development.
Right-brained learners are three-dimensional thinkers who focus on global and creative development. This is the time when the right-brained learner starts to utilize some of the strengths of the left side of the brain to incorporate two-dimensional thinking.
The left-brained learner begins to utilize some of the strengths of the right side of the brain to incorporate three-dimensional thinking. The Moores support my theory of a major shift during this stage in their book Better Late than Early.
Even though each brain processing preference continues to rely heavily on its own specialization right-brained children are still right-brained dominant and left-brained children are still left-brained dominanteach more fully integrates the less preferred specialty skills.
Robinson points to the likelihood that the early adolescent years, from 10 to 14, may be the time when most children finally develop the full range of their capacities, or in effect, reach their integrated maturity level.
How are we missing this huge component? In the early years, both learners are supposed to be able to delve into their dominant brain specialties so that they have a firm foundation in their strengths. Left-brained learners are doing that because of how schools are set up to support their strengths.
Right-brained learners try to do that, too. Does school promote these subjects between 5 and 7 years old? No, they promote the subjects that left-brained children succeed in as a foundation.
Who gets to decide that the subjects most conducive to the right-brained universal gifts is less important than those subjects most conducive to the left-brained universal gifts?
Once we understand this difference, we can celebrate it and encourage it instead of fearing it and misunderstanding it. They are developing a strong visualization ability which is needed to create, maintain, and translate the images.
And they are nurturing their extraordinary imaginations which is the base for innovation, creativity, and big picture thinking they excel at as learners.
Instead of honoring this foundation for our right-brained children, we are trying to turn them into left-brained thinkers. We can and should value the focus and natural development for right-brained children during the foundational years of learning.
During the next two stages of learning, the Transition and Integration Stages, each of the two gift areas of each of the brain processing preferences get learned by the non-dominant side.
So, note that left-brained learners are naturally good at word and symbolic development, so right-brained learners pick each of those up individually at each of the next two stages. Right-brained learners are naturally good at creative and global development, so left-brained learners pick each of these up individually at each of the next two stages.
Right-brained children are ready to transition to two-dimensional, symbolic work and development at the Transition Stage, between 8 and 10 years old.
This includes the important reading and math facts skills everyone feels is crucial to have sooner than later. Because they are whole-to-part learners, the sight word method is often a good starting place for learning to read.
Phonics comes behind that. In fact, there are appropriate ways to help right-brained children learn to read that have everything to do with their brain processing traits. Here is a post that talks about some of these traits that influence how right-brained children learn to read best.
And here is a link to a reading resource page on this site and a page with examples on how certain reading programs can work for right-brained learners. Math factsstarting with addition and subtraction, will also begin during this stage.
All painlessly when we understand how, when, and why right-brained children learn. The Integration Stage is when the last of the subjects get integrated by each type of learner.Based on requirements, always pick the right tool for the job.

There is no one answer, no one path to a career in healthcare IT. To prove my point, I’ll briefly share my story. I didn’t major in a technical science at all. The path to acting careers can actually begin in high school plays and musicals.
Drama classes can introduce students to performing, different methods and schools of thought in acting, writing their own material, and different approaches to characters, along with stage and costume design.
My boyfriend and I have been together for almost three years. We both have very nerdy interests, but on somewhat different sides of the spectrum. He is a computer programmer and is also interested in AI and biology, while I am interested in media effects, scientific communication, and .
I’ll start off taking excerpts (in blue) from my book, The Right Side of Normal, from Chapters Four and Seven to explain the natural learning development for right-brained children using the Learning Stages chart I created.
