Kinesthetic And Tactile Learners


Free Parent and Teacher Resource: Questions and Answers on Kinesthetic and Tactile Learning with Ricki Linksman::

These are FAQ’s about kinesthetic learners and tactile learners that we have received from parents and teachers. If you feel you are a kinesthetic learner or you are a parent or teacher with kinesthetic children or teens, and you would like further help, you can take the Superlinks test to find out if your child is a kinesthetic learner or a left-brain kinesthetic learner, right-brain kinesthetic learner or a combination. You can also take the Keys to Learning Success on-line reading diagnostic test and get an accurate reading diagnosis with a prescriptive plan on how to improve in reading, with lessons in all learning styles and brain styles (visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic left brain or right brain) with hundreds of kinesthetic lessons plans in kinesthetic reading comprehension, kinesthetic phonics, kinesthetic study skills, kinesthetic test-taking skills, and kinesthetic vocabulary skills. You will get thousands of kinesthetic lesson plans. To order Keys to Reading Success and get help for your kinesthetic child or tactile child NOW:  (This is special order only–email: if interested).

Q: What is a kinesthetic learner?
A: Kinesthetic learners learn best through movement of their large or gross motor muscles. They take in information best when they are moving. Movement includes learning while doing, being involved in projects, discovery, role-playing, simulations, real life activities, and learning while standing up or using the large arm muscles to write as on a flip chart or chalkboard.

Q: What is a tactile learner?
A: Tactile learners learn best through their sense of touch, such as using their hands and fingers. They learn best by writing, drawing, taking notes, using hands-on manipultives, and involving their emotions and feelings while learning.

Question: Do kinesthetic learners have A.D.D. or ADHD?
A: In my article, “The Fine Line Between A.D.D. and Kinesthetic Learners,” published in the Latitudes newsletter, and in my new book, The Fine Line between ADHD and Kinesthetic Learners: 197 Activities to Quickly Improve Reading, Memory, and Learning in Just 10 Weeks: The Ultimate Parent Handbook for ADHD, ADD, and Kinesthetic Learners I point out that a kinesthetic learner does not necessarily have ADD or ADHD. ADD or ADHD can exist in someone who learns through any learning style: visual, auditory, tactile, or kinesthetic. It is not related to one’s learning style. On the other hand, a kinesthetic learner refers to someone whose neural brain patterns are more developed to take in information about the body’s movements through space. Unfortunately, what happens is that the movement characteristics that are typical of kinesthetic learners are also one of the characteristics on some of the checklists that parents and teachers fill out when a medical doctor diagnoses if someone has ADD or ADHD. Because the same characteristic appears for both categories–kinesthetic learners and those with ADD or ADHD, the assumption is often wrongly made that the kinesthetic learner has these challenges and may be improperly put on medication such as Ritalin.

My suggestion is that if you suspect your child has ADD or ADHD, you first try an intervention. You can find out the child’s best and fastest way of learning. Parents and teachers in school districts around the world have taken the Keys to Reading Success reading diagnostics test with its Linksman Learning Style Preference Assessment and Linksman Brain Hemispheric Preference Assessment to determine their child’s or teen’s best learning style and brain hemispheric preference, to see if he or she has a left-brain hemispheric preference or right-brain hemispheric preference. If he or she is kinesthetic, then you will find that learning kinesthetic accelerated learning techniques will help him or her be successful. If the child improves in reading and learning, your problem may be solved. If, even with the correct techniques to match the child’s learning style and brain style (Superlinks style) the child does not improve, then that would be a time to have a medical diagnosis made about ADD or ADHD. Remember, to be diagnosed as ADD or ADHD (attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactive disorder), it is a medical diagnosis, and needs a medical doctor to decide that through medical examination.

Question: How can I teach reading to my kinesthetic child?
A: Kinesthetic people take in information in a different way. They need a different approach for learning reading, (phonics, vocabulary, or comprehension), spelling, writing, study skills, note-taking, and test-taking skills in any content area subject. For resources, the following provides thousands of kinesthetic lesson plans and activities to teach all aspects of reading through kinesthetic techniques:  (To order Keys to Reading Success and get help for your kinethetic child or child with ADD or ADHD NOW, you can view information at : (This is a special order. If interested then email:  If you would like to test to see if your child is a kinesthetic learner, the Superlinks learning style test and brain hemispheric preference assessment and reading diagnosis will help you.

Question: How does one teach reading to a tactile learner?
A: Tactile learners learn best through their hands and fingers. This is an important approach for teaching all aspects of reading: phonics or phonemic awareness, vocabulary, or comprehension, as well as study skills, note-taking skills, memory improvement, and test-taking skills. The following resources give tactile techniques, thousands of tactile activities and lesson plans, and strategies for teaching the tactile learner.
