Sensory stimulation optimizes development in children
In order to optimize cognitive and motor development in children, we need to ensure that they are building a sufficient foundation in sensory stimulation. From touch and sound to color and smell, sensory input early in childhood lays the foundation to higher brain processing including learning, memory, attention, emotion, and movement.
Jean-Ayres, the founder of Sensory Integration Theory, has demonstrated that when touch and tactile stimulation is lacking, it can be associated with depressed motor and mental functioning. She has further found that a lack of sensory nerve stimulation can negatively affect the Reticular Activating System (RAS) which is critical in waking up the brain.
Insufficient stimulation can lead to impaired muscular movements, overreaction to stress, emotional disturbances, and learning deficits.
Introducing the Naboso children's textured insole
With sensory stimulation being so important to childhood neuro development Naboso is proud to provide the first and only sensory insole for children. The unique textural design of our products has demonstrated promising results in those children who are sensory-seeking, including children diagnosed with idiopathic toe walking, Autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and Sensory Spectrum Disorders.
