Our senses are abuzz with excitement to see this NEEF Grant at Encino Park Elementary School in action.

Multi-sensory environments have been shown to increase concentration, focus attention–all while improving creativity, social relations and communications. The various forms of fun and entertaining simuli help students concentrate and focus better.

“By incorporating these multi-sensory materials into our school curriculum, we have experienced fewer students acting up and more learning taking place,” said Shelby Gabrielson, Encino Park teacher.

Multi-sensory environments not only provide an alternative and powerful form of sensory but they also provide new ways of encouraging learning, motor development, social interaction skills and so much more.
