Did you know that your teachers were actually wrong when they taught you that there are 5 senses? We actually have (at least) 8 senses! The three other senses are vestibular/balance, proprioception, and interoception.
Proprioception senses the position, location, orientation, and movement of the body muscles and joints. Lifting heavy weights is a great way to stimulate this sense! Proprioceptive input can be calming for some kids.
Your vestibular sense tells you where your head is space and helps keep you upright. If you spin in circles, you are feeling your vestibular system!
Interoception in your internal body sense that tells you if you are hungry, thirsty, and if you have to go to the bathroom.
If you have more questions, talk to an occupational therapist!
Mini Mittens Champ this week is Ari! Ari has mastered shoe tying with Miss Rachel! He's an expert in walking, running and crawling like every animal too! Check out his awesome work in this photo! Great work Ari, we are so proud of you buddy. #minimittenchamps #minimittenchampion #minimittenpediatrictherapy #occupationaltherapy #ot #pediatricOT
Try something different and fun with your kiddos this week! Physical activity during the winter is harder for some. Try creating a DIY indoor obstacle course for your littles, its easy and you can use anything in the house, check out these examples we found online. Pinterest and google have some great ideas. Remember 150 minutes of active time each week is ideal
PERFECTLY UNIQUE is the way to be always.
Enjoy your weekend friends.
Our Mini Mitten Champion this week is Mr. K! As you can see, he had a super fun day in speech with Miss Charisse playing with our sensory snow, please excuse the snowy mess! K was working on adding words and signs to help him communicate more effectively with his family, as he struggles with an expressive language delay. #minimittenchampion #minimittenchampionoftheweek #minimittenpediatrictherapy #slp #speech #speechies #speechtherapy #speechlanguagepathology
Think about what you're saying without saying anything at all...
Nonverbal communication (NVC)- the act of conveying information without the use of words. Nonverbal communication occurs through facial expressions, gestures, body language, tone of voice, and other physical indications of mood, attitude, approbation, and so forth, some of which may require knowledge of the culture or subculture to understand. See also nonverbal behavior. #nonverbalcommunication #minimittenpediatrictherapy #minimittenfacts #minimemomonday
