instruction & LEarning

The International Dyslexia Association defines Multisensory instruction as:

Multisensory learning involves the use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile pathways simultaneously to enhance memory and learning of written language.

Multisensory Instruction At-A-Glance

  • Multisensory instruction teaches to more than one sense at a time.

  • This method of instruction gives students more than one way to make connections and learn concepts. 

  • Multisensory instruction is not just limited to teaching reading. It can be applied to any concept.
