The most reliable results you get when you tell your child that this is not is a test in the traditional sense, that there are no ’right‘ or ‘wrong’ answers and no ‘failing’. Avoid definitely giving predefined answers or watch your child over the shoulder when answering the questions. Otherwise the result would be falsified because children under supervision provide answers according to the expectations of the parents.
Have confidence - teenagers have a gut feeling for how they learn best – even if it sometimes doesn’t look like that!

What does the Learning Style Analysis offer me?
LSA reveals ... your teenagers individual personal learning style combinations.
LSA shows ... how the learning environment should be redesigned in order to achieve better academic results.
LSA provides ... guidelines to help your teenager concentrate better and learn most successfully.
Finally the LSA profile also tells you how similar - or completely different to your own learning style your teenager's natural learning style needs are.
If you have several children at home, all school-aged siblings should do an LS Analysis so that you can give give appropriate individual support. A comparison of profiles will show how different the natural learning needs of your children generally are.
So do not expect that:
- your children have the same learning style like you,
- neither children nor teenagers learn as obediently as you instruct them,
- all siblings can learn successfully in the same manner because they are all individually different.
Trust your children - they know best how they want to learn.
Allow them to learn in their own way according to the recommendations in the LSA Profile...
... and you'll be amazed how quickly they will experience learning success!
