Multisensory resources that reach all learners

Since its inception in 2006, Child1st has emerged as the leader in providing multisensory resources that parents and teachers can utilize without needing special training. Our products are researched-based and target multiple regions of the brain at the same time for a whole-brain learning experience. This means you can teach all children in their own learning language at one time. By their very design, Child1st resources meet the needs of children without the instructor needing to prepare lessons for different types of learners.

We are committed to making it possible for parents and teachers to achieve the high standard of successfully reaching all their learners. The result is that our products have become the go-to resource for those seeking to use a multisensory approach to teaching.    

Child1st empowers beginners, visual-spatial and kinesthetic learners, and children identified with learning differences such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, Down syndrome, and auditory processing to thrive! What all these children have in common is that they learn most easily when images, story, and body movement are fully integrated into their lessons. We exist so that every child has the opportunity to learn in their own learning language, and we trust that our collection of multisensory learning resources will continue to empower children around the world to learn confidently!
