Your Child Might Be A Genius In Another Culture





You may have a child with tremendous learning problems, who might function brilliantly, if he were only living in another culture. The reason for this seeming paradox is that different cultures place different priorities on specific learning abilities.

In our culture, the ability to read, write, spell and do math is very important. However, in certain South Sea island cultures, for example, it’s the ability to visualize the sky map and to observe distant landmarks and ocean currents that’s most important because of their need to navigate from island to island.

In certain African cultures, music is all-important. Children learn hundreds of dances and songs by the age of five, and musically illiterate are given special treatments for their disability.

It’s all relative — 25 years ago the ability to think logically was not as important in our culture as it is today with the advent of computers. Similarly, in 25 years we may need a totally new kind of learner who’s being ignored today!

Could this be your child?

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
