Our Senses

As humans, we have seven different kinds of sensations. They nourish our brain and provide information, so that the brain, in return, can produce a response that adapts the mind and the body to that information. When we don’t have a good supply of those sensations, the nervous system can’t develop adequately. 

The main senses are sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Beyond that, we also have the proprioceptive sense, which tells us about our position and movement in space, and the vestibular sense, which determine gravity, head movement and balance.

When a child has a sensory dysfunction, some parts of their nervous system are disorganized. This causes some senses to be heightened and others to be lessened. This is why some children with sensory needs might be sensitive to light, and others to sound, etc.

A uniquely designed sensory space

Customized to your child

A child who has sensory needs has a hard time adapting to an environment because his brain hasn’t developed a way to integrate those sensations from that environment. He needs an environment that is tailored specifically to his nervous system. If we help the child, by setting up his environment appropriately, he will be able to integrate sensations that he’s never been able to integrate before, and his brain will be able to organize itself. We set the child up for success, and everyone wins! Every child is different, and every child has different sensory needs. Therefore, no two sensory rooms are created the same! This space is targeted uniquely for your child, to help him feel more comfortable at home- to sleep better, have fewer tantrums, and feel generally happier. What could be better?
