Special Schools - A Multi-Sensory Approach



At Royal Schools for the Deaf in Manchester, teacher Chloe Bedford works with pupils with severe communication difficulties and multiple learning disorders in her primary class.

A multi-sensory approach is used to encourage communication. Objects of reference and picture exchange are some of the strategies Chloe uses in class and we see how sound and vibration are important in a Gamelan music lesson with percussion instruments.

Meanwhile, in a science class, we see how pupils are exposed to a variety of tactile experiences to encourage a concept of pushing and pulling.
