Sensory Stimulation and Ways to Enhance Your Children's Learning Experience
Studies by experts in child development show that the different types of sensory stimulation children receive through their environment can have a profound impact on their ability to learn. It's important that the child's home, school, personal and social environments provide the most positive, uplifting stimulation possible. Let's discuss this further.
Introduction to Sensory Stimulation from an Accelerated Learning Perspective
The Bad News First: What Types of Sensory Stimulation Blocks Accelerated Learning?
The TV's blasting violent movies in one room and rock music is pounding in another. Toys and clothes, half-empty potato chip bags, candy wrappers - there's clutter everywhere. There's toast burning in the kitchen. We hear arguing, yelling and there's hitting and throwing.... Help! I can't even think straight here and I'm feeling a lot of "bad energy!"
Did you feel a bit stressed reading above? Just think if you or your children had to live in it. For many families, at least some of this is their daily reality. Unfortunately, with these types of sensory stimulation, the part of our brain most acclimated for accelerated learning methods cannot be properly trained nor can the right brain connections be formed that unlock genius. In fact, experts say with the types of stimuli described, our brain can actually become wired in ways that block balanced thinking, true inner harmony, proper brain development and learning now, as well as later in life.
What Supports Accelerated Learning?
As mentioned in other sections, our brain handles many different body functions. Among these, science tells us our left brain handles the "outer senses" of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. Our right brain handles the "inner senses" of perfect memory, computer-like math calculation, rapid language acquisition, perfect pitch (musical aptitude), and intuition (your "voice of conscience").
When our immediate environment is relaxed and we feel calm inside, our right brain functions can take in massive amounts of information very easily if properly stimulated. Also, being in the right environment gives us the best opportunity to form strong positive brain connections between our left right brain functions when using accelerated learning techniques. When this occurs, we’re becoming a genius!
Experts in accelerated learning tell us that when our brain is in the alpha wave state, we are the most alert and receptive to right brain and accelerated learning methods (see chart above). So, it's important to have the right stimuli around us that encourages the right state of mind for your children's learning.
