Multisensory Techniques:

Multisensory Techniques:

Multisensory techniques are frequently used for students with Learning Disabilities (LD) Multisensory teaching techniques and strategies stimulate learning by engaging students on multiple levels. They encourage students 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:

 

Students with LDs typically have learning differences in one or more areas of reading, writing, math, listening comprehension, and expressive language. Multisensory techniques enable students 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.
