A multisensory approach to instruction is effective for all learners, but students with challenges in the areas of ADD/ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Processing and Memory really benefit from this approach.  By engaging the student with multiple modalities, the learning becomes more concrete, real, and is easier to understand. When students are more interested and engaged with the material, they learn more effectively.  Examples of a multisensory approach include the use of many visuals, hands on activities, opportunities to manipulate the learning material (often through the use of technology) and engaging verbally with the Learning Coach. The use of multiple modalities is more entertaining (good for ADD/ADHD), simple and concrete (great for Learning Disabilities), and easier to remember (perfect for students with Processing and Memory challenges).
