Multisensory Learning

Multisensory instruction teaches to more than one sense at a time and gives students the opportunity to make connections and learn concepts in more than one way. Every student can benefit from multisensory instruction, not just students with learning differences or attention disorders. Any student may have trouble learning through visual or auditory instruction alone. Teaching with a multisensory approach gives these students more ways to comprehend the material being taught. Multisensory learning makes it easier for students to process information, understand and work through problems, make connections between previous and current lessons, and use nonverbal problem-solving skills.
