What Is Multisensory Education

Updated: Apr 23

What Is Multisensory Education?


Multisensory education means teaching in a way that involves different parts of the brain at the same time. We do this by using activities that engage students’ senses of sight, hearing, and touch. This not only makes learning fun and exciting but also helps kids who learn in different ways. When all parts of the brain are active, students become more aware, understand better, pay more attention, and remember things for longer.



How Does It Work?


  1. Visual Instruction: We use visuals like pictures, diagrams, and maps to help kids understand ideas better. For example, we might show how a math problem works using pictures or use symbols to represent different concepts.

  2. Auditory Instruction: We involve sounds and voices in learning. This can be through rhymes, reading stories aloud, or using special tools to make sounds louder. Hearing information in different ways helps kids remember it better.

  3. Kinesthetic Learning: This is about getting kids moving! We encourage activities where they can use their bodies to learn, like acting out a story or doing hands-on experiments. Moving around helps kids connect what they're learning with their muscles, making it easier to remember.

Types of Multisensory Learning:


Multisensory learning includes different ways to learn that use our senses. These are:


  1. Seeing: Utilizing visual aids like pictures, charts, and videos.

  2. Listening: Engaging in auditory activities such as listening to instructions, discussions, and stories.

  3. Moving: Participating in activities that involve physical movement and tactile experiences.

  4. Smelling: Incorporating scents and aromas to enhance learning experiences.

  5. Tasting: Exploring different tastes and flavors as part of the learning process.


FAQ:


Why is multisensory learning important if I'm teaching just one child at home?


Using all these different ways to learn is important because it helps your child learn in the way that's best for them. By using things they can see, hear, touch, smell, and taste, you're giving them lots of chances to understand and remember things. This makes learning more interesting and helps them do better in school.

Feel free to let us know if you need further adjustments or have any questions!


By using all three of these approaches, we make sure that both sides of the brain are working together. This makes learning more effective and enjoyable for children of all learning styles.
