A multi-sensory approach to teaching involves input from all the senses and requires cognitive imput to process the varied information. It has been shown to be effective in teaching students with learning difficulties. The aim is to pair visual and auditory stimulus with meaningful student activity, in a way that promotes understanding and builds on previous knowledge. It also allows students to use their strengths while developing weaker areas. Experiental learning, such as hands-on activities or computer-assisted learning, can assist those students with learning difficulties to assimilate the information in a meaningful way.
