Multisensory techniques are frequently used for children with Learning Disabilities (LD) Multisensory teaching techniques and strategies stimulate learning by engaging students on multiple levels. They encourage children to use some or all of their senses to:
Gather information about a task;
Link information to ideas they already know and understand;
Perceive the logic involved in solving problems;
Learn problem-solving steps;
Tap into nonverbal reasoning skills;
Understand relationships between concepts; and
Learn information and store it for later recall.
Why Multisensory Techniques Are Important for Students With LDs:
Children with LDs typically have learning differences in one or more areas of reading, writing, math, listening comprehension, and expressive language. Multisensory techniques enable children to use their personal areas of strength to help them learn. They can range from simple to complex, depending on the needs of the student and the task at hand.
