These mental tricks are used to get around the problem because the person doesn’t really know a better way to resolve them.
Eg. The alphabet song helps young children remember and learn the alphabet; BUT; when an adult needs to think the alphabet song when using a dictionary, it shows they haven’t really mastered the alphabet and need tricks to get by.
These tricks slow them down and are what really disable learning.
Some common tricks that aren’t really solutions:
• extreme concentration
• memorising rather than learning
• rereading over and over
• sounding out each letter
• getting others to read or write for them
• becoming the ‘class clown’ or ‘teacher's helper’
• withdrawing from social situations
• adopting an ‘I don’t care attitude’
• excellent at making up excuses
