Basing from relevant information and sources of knowledge, this case study shall attempt to identify ways of enhancing learning on ‘Child A’. The case shall also shed light on relevant theories on learning, and how they contribute to enhancing learning on ‘Child A’. The case study shall also attempt to relate the learning theories to classroom situation of ‘Child A’, as well as conducting an assessment on brain, gender, race, and environment, and contribution in learning.
