Sensory Processing

Keeping your body and mind in balance requires a balanced interaction between you and your environment. How do Cornelias process signals they receive from their environment? How do they respond to it and what does this tell us about their feeling of safety or anxiety?

When the interaction between you and your environment is well-balanced, this often leads to a feeling of security and well-being.
How can we understand and take care of a safe and properly adapted (learning) environment?
