Subject: Re: Identifying slow learners and lazy learners


I am curious if there is a correlation between slow learners and
attention deficit disorder?  Do they learn better from a kinesthetic
teaching perspective?

I have noticed when given shortened projects that can be completed
quickly, slow learners may not learn as much as fast learners but can
still absorb core concepts.  A sense of accomplishment seems to act as
a great ego boost and powers the slow learner into the next project.

I am trying to find the right balance of proven techniques for a "test
subject" I am working with. 

Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Comments?
