Multi Sensory Learning
A multi sensory approach to learning deepens understanding and can have dramatic benefits for children with disabilities.
Moti-Lab fosters this learning style by engaging all the senses in it’s use. As the tasks for Moti-Lab are in general, open ended, the individual child can perform the tasks to the best of their abilities regardless of what they may be.
This has major advantages for you and your setting. Some of the children in your care may simply be at the level of sensory learning and learning through play, whilst others may be higher functioning, Moti-Lab can offer learning outcomes for every child and allow each child to push their own boundaries.
The children can work towards the learning plans that are laid out for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 so Moti-Lab can be used as a learning tool for your most and least able children.
Exploring and pushing these boundaries can be done by the children themselves or encouraged and directed by teachers.
The multi sensory aspect of Moti-Lab can be enhanced by adding simple resources you may already have, bubbles and food colouring to name just two. Other media that flows can be investigated be that washing up liquid, rice, water beads etc all enhance the sensory nature of Moti-Lab. Other water resources can also be used, such as pouring cups, watering cans etc, to enhance the fine and gross motor skills Moti-Lab requires.
