Welcome to Unique Learners! 

 

We believe that all students are unique learners! However, there are some students who are more challenging to teach than others due to a variety of special needs, such as:

               Attentional Factors

              Learning Style

              Combination of Multiple Intelligences

              Basic Human Needs

              Processing Skills—Visual and Auditory

              Memory

              Sensory Issues

              Conceptualizing Skills

              Physical Needs

              Developmental Levels

              Learning Disabilities

              Emotional and Behavioral Issues

              Interests

              And more! 

When looking at teaching approaches, methods, and techniques and products that support them, we evaluate them based on the following criteria: 

Is it multisensory? Does the product enable the student to see it, say it, hear it, touch it, write it, and move it? Is it appealing to a particular learning style with qualities such as use of color, more white space, format of information, style of presentation? 

Is it systematic? Does it thorough in content and consistent, concise, and clear in directions, cuing, and practice? Is the teacher materials research- based, yet easy to use? 

Is it consistent with a Christian Worldview? Although there still are not many products that are specifically designed for special needs from a Christian perspective, there are excellent secular materials that are “neutral” in philosophy.  

Sue Hegg is currently in the process of finishing off several curricular projects that will soon be available to homeschoolers and Christian schools. In the meantime, if you have questions or are looking for materials, please feel free to contact us.
