As your infant grows, she needs the right sensory stimulation, which plays a big part in brain development. Sensory stimulation is one of the best ways an infant learns and adapts to every day life. At Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Houston/Katy, we have been successfully running an infant and child care program for many years, and we understand the importance of sensory stimulation for your infant. Below we have listed some useful information about the importance of sensory stimulation.

Sensory Stimulation

The best way your infant to learn and grow is through sensory stimulation. Infants learn through their environment, their families and through their own physical senses. Sensory stimulation is ultimately about movement and exploring.

Sensory stimulation can be addressed in several ways including:

  • Vestibular: The vestibular system contributes to movement and the sense of balance. Your infant’s vestibular system will immediately respond to rocking or swaying motions. This stimulation should be done slowly and gently.
     
  • Tactile: This stimulation is one of the most effective and important ways to communicate with your infant. Massaging and playful touching will convey security, tenderness and attention. This type of stimulation is vital for parents in developing a strong bond with their child.
     
  • Visual: Though infants will look at everything, they are more engaged when looking at faces, therefore regularly engaging your infant with family and friends will help them develop visual skills more quickly. Also, slow moving objects are easier for them to focus on, so, hanging objects are good options. Hang them about twelve inches above your infant’s head or upper half of the face.

Sensory stimulation is important for your infant’s brain development and for physical development so ensure that this is something you do everyday.
