Sensory 4

Skills

  • The act of swinging provides vestibular input to children.  This input helps a child feel his body in space. It can also help reduce hyperactivity because it calms the nervous system and readies it for cognitive activities presented after. Vestibular input also helps children develop balance.
  • Children gain proprioceptive input as they make small postural changes during swinging.

Play Ideas

  • Enhance sensory play by holding out a tactilely interesting toy for a child to touch or a tambourine for a child to kick each time he swings forward.
