Proprioceptive Behaviors

How DOES sensory processing impact behavior anyway?

The answer is our sensory system is responsible for telling us what is happening around AND inside our bodies. This information impacts how we move, react, respond, as well as our emotions.

Proprioception skills are vital to helping us feel safe in our environment. Working on activities like crawling, climbing, push ups, and more help to build the brain connections for proprioception.

All of this information combines to impact our regulation. Think about the last time you were somewhere that was so loud you couldn’t think. Maybe that made you feel frustrated because you were not able to listen to what your body was telling you. Perhaps someone stood too close to you in the grocery check out and you felt uneasy. That was sensory information as well.

Working to build strong sensory systems through exposure, movement, play, and mindfulness can result in a greater capacity to manage changes in our emotions and behavior.
