Multisensory Educational Software

Multisensory learning encourages students to learn through the use of two or more of their senses; for example, students learn through seeing visuals, as well as hearing the teacher or a classmate speak. Multisensory educational software allows students to learn by using multiple senses and through a variety of ways.  Students who are kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learners, as well as those with learning difficulties and ADHD benefit from multisensory software as it keeps the student engaged in the lesson, while also allowing them to actively participate.  

The video below demonstrates counting numbers to Kindergarten learners.  They are to place the correct number where it belongs.  Programs such as TouchMath give students the ability to interact with the material being learned and allows them think on their own while building age appropriate math skills.
