Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is not a book you pick up at the store to read for pleasure. This is a book for a parent looking for answers the school doesn't have. This is a book for a classroom teacher trying to implement the new ELA common core standards. This is a book for the reading specialist in charge of making sure struggling readers can succeed on tough state assessments. This is a book for the special education teacher, whose students don't respond to instruction the way other students do. This book is for the speech therapist to help students connect oral language with the written word. This book is for everymember of a student's IEP team to guarantee that students are quickly and accurately diagnosed with reading disabilities and that appropriate plans are developed to ensure success for each and every student. If this book is for you, you will find pleasure in the knowledge that you can provide the best possible programming for students who find reading unbearable.

The depth and breadth of information contained in these pages is guarunteed to alter the practices of even the most veteran teachers. Teachers will learn the specifics for incorporating multisensory teaching into their daily routines. Explicit examples make the strategies easy to use in the classroom. The immediate payoff is evident in increased student learning. This should be a requirement for any preservice teacher and those who have been in the field for a while.

The must have for multisensory teaching- Chapter by chapter this book breaks it down and provides research, methods and instruction for multisensory teaching. Great for new teachers or novice teachers looking to expand their teaching skills.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a special education teacher in a district that can't afford "specialists" so I had to try to learn as much about reading as I could to try to help my students. I was expecting multi-sensory to involve more movement. There kinesthetic element refers to the movement of the jaw when pronouncing various phonemes. The book is 600 + pages and I read all but the two chapters that didn't readily apply to me in my middle school setting. The principles explained in this book that I've used so far have been helpful and effective.
