Creating Your Very Own Sensory Motor Experience

We believe in creating experiences for the children we work with. We even have an episode on how to create experiences (make sure you check that one out!)! We also believe that movement = learning. So, when we can put those two things together, we can create an incredible opportunity for growth! A sensory motor experience is , quite simply, a movement sequence that helps to improve attention, praxis, coordination, and executive functioning. We are OBSESSED with creating new sequences that target a variety of skills but that are also fun and different each time! And we want to give you the opportunity to do so as well! Enjoy!

BORING, BUT NECESSARY LEGAL DISCLAIMERS

While we make every effort to share correct information, we are still learning. We will double check all of our facts but realize that medicine is a constantly changing science and art. One doctor / therapist may have a different way of doing things from another. We are simply presenting our views and opinions on how to address common sensory challenges, health related difficulties and what we have found to be beneficial that will be as evidenced based as possible.
