We learn about the world constantly through our senses and by interacting with it. Children explore and play in different environments and in doing so they find out what burns them or hurts them, what can be eaten, which things smell nice and what different sounds signify. This process of exploration and learning continues throughout our lives. Because of physical, sensory or intellectual disabilities many people have not had the same opportunities to explore and interact with their environment. Sensory stimulation programs are designed to provide environments in which people with disabilities can have the opportunity to use their senses to learn about and interact more meaningfully with the world.

Part One 1: The meaning of sensory stimulation. 2: Theoretical framework for sensory stimulation programmes. 3: Maximising participation in sensory focused activities. 4: Assessment and evaluation. 5: How to structure sensory focused activities. 6: The Skills Enhancement Unit, An example of a sensory programme. Part Two. Ideas for sensory focused activities: Making everyday activities sensory stimulating; Recording forms; Activities - Drinks; Activities - Food; Activities - Personal care and household care; Activities - Art and craft. Glossary. References.
