The way the body takes in, analyzes, and reacts to information it receives from the environment through our eight senses. Yes, eight! We all have the auditory (hearing), olfactory (smell), oral (taste), vestibular (where our bodies are in space), proprioceptive (the way our bodies move), tactile (touch), visual (sight), and interoceptive (sense of body’s physical condition) sensory systems.  Integration of our senses is a very important part of child development, especially at a young age. Sensory experiences can be so powerful that they create new paths in the brain.
