SENSORY HOME LEARNING IDEAS
 
Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction. This group of activities focuses on activities for physical movement [gross motor movement].
 
Information to note: up and down or spinning movements are alerting and side to side movements are calming. 
Be careful with spinning activities unless your child seeks this to avoid injury or disorientation.  
Be careful not to lift, push or carry objects which are too heavy - this includes for your child and yourself.
