It will give you learning strategies to help increase comprehension, memorization and retention.

It gives teachers, parents and learners a similar framework and language to use in creating an individualized education plan. It also allows parents and resource consultants to better match curriculum and learning opportunities to a learner's unique style. It is empowering for learners to increase their awareness about how they learn best which can help solve learning problems.
