Sensory skills

Sensory skill development is closely tied to motor development. Children develop sensory skills primarily by exposure to a stimulating (but not overstimulating) environment. They learn about light, colour, sound, touch, texture, taste, and so by interacting with the world around them. Caregivers provide safe opportunities and situations for children to explore and expand their environments, learning more and more as they grow. As your child develops, you will introduce her or him to new places and people, new tastes, words, sights, and so on. Making a conscious effort to point out new and different stimuli in the everyday environment will promote sensory development.
