A Sensory Circuit is a sensory-motor skills programme that helps children to achieve the optimum state of alertness in readiness for learning. The circuit provides the environment and the sensory opportunities needed, to get an individual’s nervous system ready to engage in daily life. Participation in a sensory circuit is a great way both to energise and settle children into the school day. The sensory circuit should be an active, physical and fun activity that children enjoy.
