Multi-Sensory Therapy: How Multi-Sensory Therapy Can Change the Brain

This session is intended as an introduction to multi-sensory therapy for homeschool educators who are interested in helping those with special needs accelerate their learning. Multi-sensory therapy (training) is increasingly recognized as a viable alternative to medication. It is used to address a host of learning difficulties and sensory processing challenges - including autism, and is easily adapted for implementation in home and school environments.

Fun Activities that Help Build Language Skills

JENNIFER ELIA @ AURELIUS CABRINI

Fun Activities that Help Build Language Skills--There are many systems, such as Orton Gillingham, that do excellent jobs of teaching reading and spelling to struggling students. However, there are many fun, non-academic activities that help in building language skills. These include physical activity such as swimming, and fun distractions like games and hands on crafts.
