A free webinar series (English with Spanish translation) is offered by Quality of Life Institute, Inc., in partnership with INCLUSI of California. This series is a public service outreach for community awareness of possibilities and resources for parents, educators, and other caregivers and mentors who impact the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Research is collecting increasing evidence that emphasizes how multi-sensory integration in learning environments adds value to everyday perceptual tasks, and is showing how interactions within multi-sensory environments ‘increase neural plasticity and enhance one’s ability to learn (Shams & Seitz, 2008).
Our hope is that all of us, including Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families and mentors/teachers can thrive in their communities. A Sensory Solutions Learning Framework supports each learner’s well-being and offers meaningful direction for the facilitator. It’s applications achieve a quality-of-life outcome by nurturing the relational, social-emotional foundation for learning, expanding from this center to cultivate a climate of reciprocation in the learning environment.
