Subject: Does a learning style indicate a disability?

According to Contra Costa Community College District, each student has his/her own learning style: audio, visual, or tactile/kinesthetic. At their Diablo Valley College, they have a Learning Styles Survey in their disabled student services website.

They state its purpose is simply to let you know what your best learning style is.

They state that a learning style does not indicate a disability.

What do you think? Does a learning style indicate a disability?

Take their Learning Styles Survey for yourself at www.dvc.edu/dss

At the website, click on Learning Styles Survey.


Just click this shortcut >>>

Answer the 32 questions, then press "Submit your answers".

The computer software will then give you a raw score of your visual/verbal, visual/nonverbal, auditory, and kinesthetic. Then it will predict what your best learning style is.

Tell me what you think.

My raw score was visual/nonverbal - 26, visual/verbal - 20, auditory - 38, kinesthetic - 26.

The software predicted that I have a auditory/verbal learning style.

What do you think?

I think they're right. We all do have our own learning styles but that doesn't mean we all are learning disabled in the classroom.

It also doesn't mean that classrooms are the only place where learning happens.
