Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Dr Susie Nyman to discuss multi-sensory teaching strategies that you can use across different subjects and areas. You can listen to the podcast here.
Susie is the Curriculum Manager at The Sixth Form College, Farnborough. She is passionate about discovering how children learn and supporting them in ways which enable them to succeed. She has provided training to PGCE students at Kingston University, and in a number of local schools and colleges on teaching strategies. She also delivers talks on multi-sensory techniques around the world.
Multi-sensory strategies are great for supporting pupils with dyslexia and a range of other types of SEND. Multi-sensory strategies sounds amazing, but also sound complicated, yet they are often quite simple, it might just take finding an out of the box approach. Let’s start with the simple question – What is multi-sensory teaching.
The podcast is a lively discussion of easy-to-replicate Multi-sensory Techniques that have been developed on a shoestring, inspiring students with dyslexia to become grade risers and ultimately achieve stellar results. Susie discusses innovative tried and tested Multi-Sensory Techniques she has used in the classroom setting at The Sixth Form College, Farnborough as well as in Curriculum Support at The Oratory School. These are published in the latest ‘BDA Dyslexia Friendly Schools Good Practice Guide’ and ‘The Multi-sensory Toolkit’ by Oaka books.
