100 Powerful Learning Specialist and Educational Therapy Materials

This week I wanted to tell you about my online store, Good Sensory Learning. I’m Dr. Erica Warren, and I established this site so I could share all the materials that I have created over the last 20+ years as a learning specialist and educational therapist. When I first began my private practice, Learning to Learn, I had great difficulty finding fun and multisensory materials for my students that were effective and engaging.

Learning academics through music
Nathan John and Learn Thru Music
In August 2016, I had the pleasure of interviewing Nathan John, a creative, ingenious, British entrepreneur with dyslexia that is helping struggling students learn to read and memorize academic content around the globe. Nathan founded Rewise Learning in 2008 and specializes in providing fun and innovative educational solutions. Today we will be focusing on LearnThruMusic, a website that teaches core academic subjects using modern music genres, video, and interactive activities. These fun and effective learning resources were developed in consultation with teachers and students, and I know you will be impressed with both the variety and quality presented on their site.
