Let’s Get Moving

Physical activity helps us with regulation and sensory input. Below are some descriptions of different types of movement for you and your child to connect through exercise.  

 

Aerobic: any physical activity that makes you sweat, causes you to breathe harder, and gets your heart beating faster.  

Proprioception: any input that helps the body sense its location in the world around you 

Vestibular: any motion that coordinates movements of the eyes, head and body which affect our body’s balance 

Brain Integration: any exercise that helps our nervous system communicate with our brain.  

 


Here’s what you’ll need:

 

1. Pencil and printed handout

2. Indoor/Outdoor space for moving around

3. Extra energy and a drink
