A Multi-Sensory Approach to Teaching Writing at Home

A multi-sensory approach to learning may be the element you’ve been missing

We all learn better when we engage more than one of our senses in our learning with us. This goes double when you are trying to teach a child with special needs.  Try using a multi-sensory approach! Helping them learn with their entire body, will make learning more fun, and will help them grasp concepts faster. One example of this is to employ different senses when teaching a child to write.

Each child is different, so the senses that you use will have to be effective ones for them. Understanding your child’s sensory profile is an important step in this. Once you have determined what senses will aid best in learning, it is time to put your thinking cap on! Here are some ideas in a couple of different sensory areas to get you started!
