Does anyone have any information on HOW to teach reading-phonics (and spelling) using an multi-sensory approach?
There is a technique called VAKT (visual, auditory, kinetic, tactile) where students do a sequence of activities that involve fine and gross motor skills to learn letters and sounds. They look at a word, then say it and spell it aloud, then use their whole body or big motions to make the letters, then practice writing it on a textured surface.
