FAQ for Parents:

Why is my child struggling to learn in school?

Every child learns differently. Sometimes, the traditional methods used in schools might not match your child's unique way of learning. Some kids do well with hands-on activities, while others might prefer seeing or hearing things explained. Multisensory learning offers different ways to teach, making it easier for your child to understand and do well.

How can I help my child learn at home using multisensory methods?

Making learning fun and engaging at home is easy with multisensory techniques. You can use everyday activities like cooking, gardening, or crafting to involve all of your child's senses. For example, cooking together lets them hear the recipe, see and touch ingredients, and smell and taste the finished dish.

What if my child seems to only like one way of learning?

It's normal for kids to have a favorite way of learning, but it's good to expose them to different methods. Even if they're great at one style, mixing in others can make their understanding stronger and help them remember things better.

How can I figure out how my child learns best?

Watching how your child naturally enjoys different activities can give you clues about their preferred learning style. Do they love listening to stories or music? Do they enjoy drawing or looking at pictures? Are they always eager to join in hands-on activities? Paying attention to these cues can help you adjust their learning experiences to suit them.

What are some fun multisensory activities I can do with my child?

There are tons of exciting multisensory activities you can try at home:

  • Make sensory bins filled with different textures like rice, beans, or sand.

  • Take nature walks to explore different sights, sounds, and smells.

  • Include music and movement in learning, like dancing while learning math facts.

  • Use scented markers or stickers during art projects to involve their sense of smell.
