Visual Spatial Learners (VSL's) are multi-dimensional picture thinkers.

They are often bright but many underachieve or fail at school.  They are commonly labelled as being "lazy", "disruptive", "not interested", "a trouble maker"  or "just a daydreamer".   Most VSL's don't like going to school.  They become what Dr. Selznick calls "The Shut-Down Learner", because they think and learn in a different way. 

Behaviour challenges often arise when the visual spatial learner is not understood in the classroom.  The child loses confidence even though they may be inquisitive and competent learners outside of school.
