Abstract

The use of teaching aids is seen as an important component in the teaching and learning process to improve students' understanding of learning, especially students with special educational needs (SEN). The purpose of this writing is to identify the appropriate VAK teaching aids according to the category and level of SEN disability, identify issues in providing VAK teaching aids and find out the importance and implications of the appropriate teaching aids for students with SEN. The issue that arises in relation to VAK teaching aids is the use of teaching aids that does not suit the student's disability and the teacher's lack of knowledge regarding the use of teaching aids based on the student's learning style. The appropriate use of teaching aids can help students with SEN to understand the learning process delivered in class, can detect the potential and talent of students with SEN in the academic or co-curricular field and be able to apply the student-centered learning concept. The challenge of using the appropriate teaching aids according to the category and level of disability of students with SEN in the classroom can be divided into three factors, which are the student, teacher and school factors. One of the ways to overcome this issue is that teachers need to study the level of student ability based on each category before creating teaching aids and divide students based on three main groups, namely visual, auditory and kinesthetic.
