This is an article that gives some ideas as to RB characteristics.

I struggled with my daughter until I realized she was a RB learner (visual & kinesthetic). I then tailored curriculum and learning experiences toward her learning style and what a difference. Now my daughter is only 5, so it's obviously different. But once I tailored her education to her style it went from a challenge to excitement for both of us.

So, food for thought
I will definitely research this. She is definitely more of a kinesthetic learner, so maybe she is a RB learner. I never knew there was a difference
