|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.
Guided Response: Review at least two of your classmates’ posts and extend their learning by asking them to clarify their understanding, share an example or experience. Share an insight or something you learned from reading your classmates’ posts or from the text that helps to clarify your thinking.
