Students with learning differences may get frustrated when learning is packaged in formats that are a mismatch for that student. Scholastic achievement may go undetected and unrecognized, giving the student an incorrect, repeating message that they are not cut out for academic settings.
Traditional approaches to academic coaching have mixed results when students don’t formulate a connection between tools they are given and how they can apply them in new learning scenarios. Fortunately, experiential learning via a topic of interest can revitalize a learner’s engagement.
With support, students can leverage their passion for a favorite topic to fuel exploration of a research project of their choosing. Solving hands-on problems using a variety of analytical, creative, and communication skills helps students strengthen academic capabilities, which can later translate to improved focus and performance in school setting. Experiencing mastery bolsters a student’s image of themselves as a learner who is able to achieve something concrete, original, and systematically organized.
