Multisensory Teaching: Crossing Into a New Discipline

Kristen Morgan


Effective communication is one characteristic of an effective teacher. Communication can engage the learner through a single sensory (i.e., auditory) or through multiple sensory (i.e., auditory, visual, and kinesthetic). Teaching with a multisensory approach provides additional pathways for the learner to receive information. Multisensory teaching is practiced with children with speech and language disorders in language education although this article will describe how it could be incorporated in physical education. While there is limited research in the physical education setting, enhanced communication using multisensory teaching provides opportunities for learning in students with and without speech and language disorders.
