Learning Styles Counseling. ERIC Digest.
Griggs, Shirley A.
The challenge for schools today is to assess the learning style characteristics of each student and to provide teaching and counseling interventions that are compatible with those characteristics. The counselor's role is major--both as a consultant to teachers and as a provider of counseling services. This digest discusses learning style models, diagnosing learning styles, matching learning style preference with appropriate counseling techniques, and the need for counselors to become skilled in consultation with teachers. Counselors across the nation who have implemented learning style approaches have reported positive changes in students' academic achievement and attitudes toward school as a result. (ABL)
