We're Sensory Kids, a family friendly multi-sensory and early stimulation studio providing both parents and children with adequate stimulation to enhance cognitive, physical and social development.
The Human Brain
The human brain is believed to hold approximately 100 billion cells - also known as neurons. Neurons connect with other neurons for information transmission through neuronal migration, a process during brain development that brings different classes of neurons together so that they can interact appropriately. This process is known as synapse. At birth, each neuron in the cerebral cortex has approximately 2,500 sypapses. By the time an infant is two or three years old, the number of synapses reaches 15,000 per neuron. This amount is about twice tha of the average adult brain, as the infant/toddler brain produces synaptic connections at a faster rate that it 60% in the first year, 85% in the following two.
The Importance of Multi-Sensory Integration & Early Stimulation
Following birth, the brain of a newborn is flooded with information from the baby's sense organs.This sensory information must make it back to the brain to be processed. This is the foundation of brain plasticisty- or neuroplasticity- our brain's ability to reorganize neural pathways in the brain.Long lasting functional changes in the brain occur when the child learns new things or memorize new information.
Early brain stimulation is crucial in the child's development as is the foundation of neuroplasticity and adaptability. The first five years of life provide an important window of opprtunity to adequately stimulate your child's brain in order to maxime their skills in different domains such as visual, auditory, fine and gross motor and inter-relational, among others.
We are a Multi-Sensory and Early Stimulation studio focusing on Learning, Developing and growing your child's intelectual, emotional and social abilities.
vivian gaviria, b.s.
Elementary Education with ESOL endorsement teacher + Certified Baby Sensory Instructor + Certified DCF Pre-school teacher
Vivian obtained her Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with ESOL endorsement at Florida International University. She worked with Miami Dade Public Schools as a teacher and previously worked in the preschool setting. With 10 + years of experience working with children, Vivian has been able to observe the importance of parent and child bonding and understand how it is beneficial in the child’s growth development. Her goal with Sensory Kids is to be able to apply her knowledge and skills and experience as well as provide support to your child’s social, emotional and cognitive development.
