Sensory Processing

Sensory Processing

Sensory Processing refers to the way a person’s nervous system receives sensory messages and turns them into responses. These senses include sight (vision), sound (auditory), touch (tactile), taste (gustatory), body position (proprioception) and movement (vestibular). Most people receive and organize these messages effortlessly into adaptive physiological and behavioral responses.

Sensory Art

Sensory Art is the use of coloring tools and other sensory media to produce creative “works of art”. These activities improve a child’s sensory processing skills in an enjoyable manner. Great for use at school and home! Using themed coloring picture sheets, the child will begin by using traditional tools such as crayons to color as much or as little of the sheet as he or she wishes. The next step is to “decorate” the picture using glue and medium that offers tactile and olfactory experiences.

Children will experience a great variety of sights, scents, and textures to manipulate. These resources also provide many opportunities for developing skills in the area of fine motor, bilateral coordination, and praxis. The child will be challenged in the area of ideation (what to do with all of these things?) and execution (how to manipulate to form the product).
