Multisensory techniques are frequently used for children with learning differences. Multisensory teaching techniques and strategies stimulate learning by engaging students on multiple levels. Using a multisensory teaching technique means helping a child to learn through more than one sense. They encourage students to use some or all their senses to:

* Gather information about a task

* Link information to ideas they already know and understand

* Perceive the logic involved in solving problems

* Learn problem solving tasks

* Tap into nonverbal reasoning skills

* Understand relationships between concepts

* Store information and store it for later recall
