Sensitivity and alertness

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Anandi Hattangi

Sensory processing is the process that organises sensation from one’s own body and the environment, making it possible to use the body effectively within the environment. Specifically, it deals with how the brain processes multiple sensory inputs such as sight, sound, taste, touch, and hearing.

Research has shown that different regions of the brain may not be solely responsible for only one sensory area, but could use multiple inputs to perceive what the body senses about its environment. Multisensory integration is necessary for almost every activity that we perform because the combination of multiple sensory inputs is essential for us to comprehend our surroundings.

This module looks at how we are all sensitive to our surroundings, how this sensitivity changes and shifts in different situations, how we gauge what is going on around us and how we respond to it.

We will explore

  • How we can respond to our environment sensitively
  • What is going on in the brain as we respond to outside influences
  • A breathing exercise
  • How our breathing affects our experience of the world
  • Class activities to explore sensitivity and alertness


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activity

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
