Sensory Pathway Resource Center
We’re pleased to provide you with our Sensory Pathway Resource Center, the hub of all things sensory pathway related! Here, you can access all of our sensory pathway products and learn more about what exactly a sensory pathway is and how your school, playground or community can benefit from having one.
For almost a decade now, we’ve been creating outdoor playground stencils, movement opportunities and activity circuits, and we've since expanded into indoor graphics that stick to floors and walls as well as portable recess activities that can be used anywhere. Today, we sell more than 200 products, many of which can be used for your sensory pathway needs, both indoors and outdoors.
Keep checking back as we continue to add more features and information to this page!
Why Sensory Pathways Are Important
Sadly, many children’s sensory pathways, and ultimately their sensory systems of the body, are simply not challenged enough. If the sensory system is under stimulated, our bodies often seek out ways to find stimulation to satisfy that need. Providing a comprehensive approach to ensuring that children have ample opportunities to engage in daily physical activity (by increasing opportunities to experience new sensory pathways) is critical to development. When sensory pathways are created in a meaningful and thoughtful way, they can contribute to a child’s overall health and daily well-being.
