by coryjohnston

In this episode of the podcast, we dive deep into the concept of sensory modulation, focusing on what we term as over responsive behaviour. We describe in detail the reasons behind over responsiveness, how we can understand it better, and the strategies we can use to work with children demonstrating these behaviours. Our discussion brings in multifaceted perspectives stemming from neuroscience, psychology, and therapeutic treatments that can help children with diverse sensory needs.   ----- The Science and Art of Sensory Modulation: Sensory modulation refers to the brain's management of ..read more

This episode we discuss the importance of the somatosensory system in forming our sense of self through our relationships and how it shapes neurodevelopment. We explore how individuals who have not experienced secure attachment early in life may struggle with somatosensory amplification and somatization later on. We chat about the role of touch in creating a sense of safety and connection, and how sensory integrative processing can impact overall wellness. If you’re curious about the need to balance and respect boundaries while providing positive somatosensory experiences for individuals with ..read more

"The vestibular system is like the grand integrator and in that it does connect to our sensory systems, it connects to our vagal circuitry. So in that it's connecting to basic regulation functions, our basic physiological functions, but then it also is connecting to our body schema and the envelope of our somatic sensation that holds our sense of our bodies in space connects to the visual system in really direct and specific ways. The auditory system in really direct and specific ways." TRANSCRIPT Cory: Yay. Welcome back 2023. We are here. We are very excited to be back, to be having these ama ..read more
