The Multisensory Handbook
The main focus is on individuals with significant sensory disabilities such as individuals with multiple challenges who need structured intervention. Refreshingly, however, Dr. The book is organised into two parts, each with six chapters. Part I lays the foundation for multisensory stimulation, and Part II applies this theory to the presentation of a unified approach for working with individuals with sensory learning disabilities within a structured multisensory environment.
However, the chapters provide a more intricate understanding of the senses and their relationship to learning than is typically discussed. Pagliano goes beyond an isolated surface level discussion of the senses, and he structures the chapters in a way that keeps reminding the reader of the main points from the previous chapter and how they connect to the upcoming information.

This style is useful in helping the reader to meaningfully absorb the density of the information and consider its application to practice. In Part II, Dr. Pagliano introduces a unified approach for working with individuals with sensory learning disabilities in a structured multisensory environment e. By interlacing what was learned in Part I, he introduces the reader to working collaboratively, establishing a caring relationship, conducting assessments that will provide a starting point for multisensory stimulation interventions, creating an environment that meets the needs of the individual, and then using this environment to start a sensory conversation and move the individual forward.
Part II gives the reader a perspective on what these environments can provide and considerations to make them as effective as possible.

In addition, I found the forms provided in Chapter 8 on assessment to be a great reference for collecting sensory information and understanding an individual holistically. Finally, the author highlights in this part of the book the importance of establishing a caring relationship and gives practical considerations for doing so. This concept extends beyond the walls of a multisensory stimulation environment and is something of which all practitioners should be mindful.
