While it is now generally accepted that we all have different learning styles, some of these differences can create significant challenges in the classroom. Dr. Lowenstein has spent years working with a team to evaluate learning differences and disabilities of children in public schools throughout the Portland Metropolitan area. This experience provides him with unique qualifications to help students of all ages better understand and optimize their own learning style to build successful learning experiences.
“If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn.“
