Did You Know We Have 7 Senses? If You Know What The Other 2 Senses Are, You Are On Your Way To Raising A Happy And Successful Child!

In our science classes, we are taught about our 5 senses:

  • Sight
  • Hearing
  • Taste
  • Smell
  • Touch

But research has shown that we actually have 7 senses! Did you know the other 2? These lesser known senses are so important that they have a huge impact on how your child’s success and happiness in the future!

However, because of a lack of awareness about the 2 senses, coupled with too much screen time, children these days:

  • Have shorter attention span and focus
  • Are unable to sit still for a longer period of time
  • Have poor memory and recall

“Seven or eight years of moving and play are required to give the child a sensory motor intelligence that can serve as the foundation for intellectual, social, and personal development.” ~Jane Ayres, PhD.

And The Two Senses Are:

What is vestibular?

Think gravity, movement, core balance. The vestibular system is the sensory system that brings together the sense of balance and spatial orientation for the purpose of coordinating movement. The vestibular system measures acceleration, g-force, body movements and head position.

Examples of the vestibular system in practice include knowing that you are moving when you are in an elevator, knowing whether you are lying down or sitting up, and being able to walk along a balance beam.

What is proprioception?

Proprioception, or body awareness sense, tells us where our body parts are relative to each other. It also gives us information about how much force is needed to use in certain activities, and that we don’t use too excessively and to learn how to control. This sense is very important as it lets us know exactly where our body parts are, how we are positioned in space and to plan our movements..

Examples of our proprioception in practice include being able to clap our hands together with our eyes closed, write with a pencil and apply with correct pressure, and navigate through a narrow space and allowing us to crack open an egg without crushing it in our hands.
