Multisensory Instruction



Multisensory instruction means that students see, hear, say, and write using all channels to the brain, the stronger channels reinforcing the weaker.

Using all four sensory channels reduces the amount of practice required for mastery and helps prevent or overcome learning difficulties. The success of The Spalding Method ®, even with children who have severe language problems, is in large part due to the multisensory nature of the method.
