    Sensory Series: See and Hear Senses

    Sensory Series: See and Hear Senses

    Today in the sensory series I will be discussing the visual and auditory senses. The episode starts with the ‘seeing’ sense which doesn’t necessarily mean how well you can see, but more about how well your brain can process the stimulation that comes in through your eyes. This includes bright or dull lights, color, how many visuals you have around you, people or bright designs. 
    The second sense, being the ‘hearing’ sense is again NOT about how well you can hear but how well your brain can process and tolerate sounds. I want to make it clear that receiving auditory input and creating auditory input are two separate things. If we are in control, we can tolerate the noise a lot better.

Senses make sense!!

I listened to Wendy’s interview on Fresh Start Family and on Joyful Courage, and now I’m enthralled with this podcast! Such amazing exciting work! Opening my eyes to my children’s and my own senses and behaviors. I described/played with the cups concept with my 8 year old. We had measuring cups of different sizes: filling with water a little, overfilling. We have started talking differently about moments in our day and how we feel related to our senses. Wonderful.
Thank you!! I am looking forward to the coming episodes!
