Sensory IntegrationSensory Integration

The development and protection of your child's senses form the foundation for healthy learning and growth throughout life. So many children today suffer from sensory integration problems, which can be helped on prevented by understanding how children grow and learn. Daena Ross gives one of the clearest explanations of Rudolf Steiner’s description of twelve senses, rather than four, that I have ever heard. And Ingun Schneider describes how the four foundational senses of touch, movement, balance, and life form the basis of all later learning. Author and educator Tim Burns explains how movement organizes brain function and why learning is best when it integrates brain, body and heart. And Waldorf and therapeutic teacher Nancy Blanning provides so many practical suggestions for helping children get into and feel at home in their bodies and the ways in which movement in nature can provide built-in sensory integration—ideally illustrated by our photo of children balancing on a log.
