Sensory Room: How to Build a Successful Sensory Room for Greater Brain Development

By: Integrated Learning Strategies

The vestibule, a part of the ear that contributes to hearing, is responsible for transforming stimuli from our environment into energy. It sends messages to the brain where they are processed into energy, and 50% of the energy that the brain needs to function optimally comes from body sensations. If not moving enough, 50% of your energy is drained. The vestibule also works with the cochlea to convert sound into energy.

High frequencies are essential for the brain, as they energize it, stimulate it, make it alert and enable it to focus and remember. Using a mixture of high and low frequencies with music therapy can help ground emotions and prepare the brain for speech and language development, auditory processing and higher learning.

The saccule, located in the ear, responds to sounds in the low frequency range, which can make us want to move and contribute to our energy level. Low frequency sounds are used for leaders to manipulate or brainwash their people, and can put listeners into a hypnotic trance. To obtain the right amount of energy, it is important to balance low and high frequencies. Music therapy can help troubled behavior become more calm, attention and focus improve, information is retained, and the child's balance and coordination is strengthened.
