    [Providers] 3 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Multisensory Teaching Techniques
    This way, each student, regardless of learning type, is provided with a means of understanding information. Olfaction & gustatory systems provide strong sensations that remain strongly connected to the information they are associated with. Multisensory learning is a method of receiving information that is effective for all students because the information coming in is connected to other senses in the body. Simply put, multisensory learning is when a student has multiple senses stimulated at the same time. Auditory (hearing). Gustatory (taste). Olfaction (smell). For all ages.
