Strategies & Interventions – Sensory Play & Exploration

Sensory play is, quite simply, any activity that stimulates the senses

 This includes the five main senses of touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound, as well as the two not-as-frequently-mentioned senses: vestibular (sense of balance) and proprioceptive (sense of where each body part is in relation to the rest).

We work hard on developing the tolerance of sensory exploration with our children with additional needs as they can sometimes be reluctant to touch things of different textures.
