Children learn about the world through active exploration of things around them. Active Learning, an approach by Dr. Lilli Nielsen, provides learning opportunities for individuals with multiple disabilities through exploration of objects in their environment. Active Learning Spaces are environmental structures that facilitate this learning by making objects accessible. The spaces include common household objects, play objects, sensory items, etc. that the child can explore through touch and other senses.
You can make Active Learning Spaces using common household items or play items from your home. Click on the following link to see examples of learning spaces you can make at home: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IP2VWoIKZyvHcoAXPMkVC4-xSQeJm1EgZ0HP0DMQjas/edit?usp=sharing
