Sensory Contributions to Learning
The main types of developmental delays in children include cognitive, emotional, motor skills, vision, and speech. Willis and Mitchell (2014) address sensory contributions to learning and how important these executive processes such as sight, touch, taste, smell, acoustics, and emotions are to learning. An individual can experience cognitive, emotional, motor skills, vision, and/or speech delays that affect their learning. How does understanding sensory contributions to learning help you to design and deliver instruction for individuals with developmental delays? Offer at least one specific example using one of the developmental delays mentioned (cognitive, emotional, motor, vision, or speech). Note that there are several recommended resources that could help you to participate in this discussion.
