Nonlinguistic Representations

The key to understanding nonlinguistic representation is first to understand how the brain processes and stores knowledge. This happens two ways: Linguistically (reading and listening) and nonlinguisticly (mental pictures, sensory details, physical movement and pattern recognition). Unfortunately for nonlinguistic learners, learning in the classroom usually consists reading and listening.  It is the combination of the two that allows the student to better recall and process information.
