Sensory

The Importance of Regulating Proprioception

Proprioception”. It’s a bit of an odd word and also tricky to pronounce. But its significance is indisputable, particularly for some neurodiverse people.

Sensory play bins

No Time For Flash Cards - Early Childhood Education

A lot of parents don’t understand the point of sensory bins. All they see is a potential mess and reach for something else. I get it. Messes can seriously raise my blood pressure, too, and an angry parent isn’t an effective one. What parents who sidestep sensory bins are failing to see are all the benefits that they offer young children. Sensory bins allow children to explore with their senses, which helps them to fill their need for sensory input while also working on skills. Skills like fine motor skills as they pick up and play with the small items, math skills when they fill and transfer items using scoops and containers and storytelling skills as they create narratives for the small world play and more. My favorite skillset children work on while at a sensory bin are language skills.
