visual learners who can't learn visually

I especially like the quote, “just varying delivery style may not be enough and... the unit of analysis must be the individual rather than the group.”

One phenomena related to visual learners is, what I call, "the visual learner who can't learn visually". However common, this paradox is frustrating and most likely perplexing to both student and teacher alike.

Understanding this phenomena is the difference between a D+ student and an A+ student. No matter how "visual" a student might be, if he can't "see" or "hold" the images steady in visual memory, if he can't integrate visual and auditory information, there will be little or no learning regardless of the student's intelligence.
