Three Reasons Why Multisensory Learning is Food for the Brain

For children with dyslexia, the use of the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile modalities can be very helpful. A major component of the Orton Gillingham Approach is that it must be multisensory. This approach aligns perfectly with how our brains learn. When both teacher and student understand how we learn based on neuroscience, it results in a mutual “buy-in.” Let’s look at three reasons why multisensory teaching is so important. Stronger Neural Connections and Better Retention Experts believe that students remember what they learn while using multiple senses more effectively than while using one sense.

In Judy Willis’ book, “Brain Friendly Strategies for the Inclusion Classroom,” a study was conducted on learning how to juggle in order to support the theory of multisensory learning.

Programmes de langues structurés multisensoriels: contenu et principes d'enseignement

Un phonème est la plus petite unité de son dans une langue donnée qui peut être reconnue comme étant distincte des autres sons de la langue. La conscience phonologique est la compréhension de la structure linguistique interne des mots. Un aspect important de la conscience phonologique est la conscience phonémique ou la capacité à segmenter les mots en leurs sons composants. Association de symboles sonores Il s’agit de la connaissance des différents sons de la langue anglaise et de leur correspondance avec les lettres et les combinaisons de lettres qui représentent ces sons.

Multisensory Structured Language Teaching Fact Sheet - International Dyslexia Association

Multisensory teaching is one important aspect of instruction for dyslexic students that is used by clinically trained teachers. Effective instruction for students with dyslexia is also explicit, direct, cumulative, intensive, and focused on the structure of language. Multisensory learning involves the use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile pathways simultaneously to enhance memory and learning of written language. Links are consistently made between the visual (language we see) , auditory (language we hear) , and kinesthetic-tactile (language symbols we feel) pathways in learning to read and spell. Margaret Byrd Rawson, a former President of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), said it well: “Dyslexic students need a different approach to learning language from that employed in most classrooms.

Multisensory Learning and Teaching for Dyslexic Students

If you have, then you know a bit about multisensory learning. This creative kind of teaching doesn't have to be that unorthodox, since counting on your fingers is multisensory, but it definitely goes beyond the traditional approach to education that relies almost exclusively on vision (reading text) and hearing (listening to the teacher talk). For the dyslexic learner, it's an approach that should be fully explored. Multisensory learning taps into our visual, auditory and tactile senses plus motion (kinesthetic) though sometimes the last two are lumped together. Below is a short description of some of the kinds of techniques that fall under each of the learning strands. Dyslexia teaching points: Multi-sensory techniques for teaching science.
