Maria Montessori's Didactic Material for Sensory Education
The word ‘didactic’ means designed or intended to teach. It also means intended to convey instruction and information as well as pleasure and entertainment.
Sensory deprivation is known to cause mental retardation. In extreme cases where psychotic parents kept children in closets all of their lives, by the time the authorities discovered the children, they had become idiots.
It is through the sensory functions that the child lays the foundation of his intelligence by continually observing, comparing and judging. In this way he grows his intelligence as he gradually becomes acquainted with his environment. An environment that richly provides sensorial experience that is aimed at sensory education accelerates the formation of intelligence.
Dr. Maria Montessori developed didactic material for the purpose of sensory education. The value of her educational materials is incalculable, as it offers the child the means for sensory education including the developing and sharpening of his skills of observation, comparison and judgment. Correct use of Montessori’s didactic material results in the optimal formation of an extraordinary foundation of intelligence that can serve throughout life.
