The VARK website helps you become aware of your own learning style -- Visual, Auditory, Reading/writing, Kinesthetic by offering a free questionnaire and scoring online. That knowledge can translate to offering your patients, students and customers information in formats more appropriate to their own learning styles. The site includes tips on tools to use for each style.
This article discusses the system and other relevant topics such as literacy level and readability:
