Types of Sensory Experience  are as:

  1. Inhibitory
  2. Excitatory
  3. Organizing

a) Inhibitory:

Inhibitory activities that decrease the child arousal (reaction/excitement) level such as deep pressure, slow movement, soft music etc.

b) Excitatory:

Activities that increase that child arousal level such as light, fast movement, loud music, bright colour etc.

c) Organizing:

Activities that help bring the child arousal level to one that 'just right' such as carrying, pushing, pulling etc. (arousal level manages).

Measuring Sensation

  1. The absolute threshold (just like approach/framework).
  2. The difference threshold.

1. The absolute threshold:

  • An absolute threshold is the smallest intensity of a stimulus that must be present for it to be detected (Aazh and Moore, 2007).
  • The absolute threshold may be defined as the minimum intensity of physical energy of a stimulus that may produce any sensation of all in a person. The absolute threshold, the minimum amount of stimulation that a person can defect 50% of the time.
  • Psychologist Gustar fencher is the founding father of absolute threshold. Information time to time encoding reaction excitement minimum amount.

2. The difference threshold:

  • Difference threshold (Just noticeable difference), the smallest level of added or reduced stimulation required to sense that a change in stimulation has occurred.
  • The difference threshold, just notable difference, the minimum difference that most happen between two stimuli for the body to identify them. In other word it is the smallest change in stimulation. It may be determine much in the same way as the absolute threshold. This was first demonstration in 1834 by psychologist Eranst weber (Weber’s law), this law stated that the difference threshold is proportional to the value of the stimulus information two time encoding time gap difference threshold.
  • Weber’s law: A basic law of psycho-physics stating that a just noticeable difference is a constant proportion to the intensity of an initial stimulus (rather than a constant amount).
