Multisensory instruction isn’t just for teaching reading. Some grade school math programs use manipulatives (small objects like interlocking cubes or shape blocks) to help kids do math.
Science labs are multisensory learning experiences, too. Kids do experiments, write down the steps, and report their findings.
Even songs and chants that teach things like the days of the week or the names of the states are examples of multisensory learning.
Multisensory instruction aligns with the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. Classrooms designed using UDL principles give kids many ways to engage in learning. UDL offers different options for kids to meet learning goals and to show what they’ve learned. Multisensory instruction does this, too. It makes it easier for kids to work in the way that they learn best in different subjects.
