The vestibular (V), proprioceptive (P), and tactile (T) systems provide an overall balanced state to the entire brain and body. The vestibular and proprioceptive systems are involved in coordinating and balancing physical movement. The tactile system provides us with our sense of touch and it is also a pathway that provides us with emotional calmness. It is important to realize that the sensory system integrates vestibular information (regarding our sense of balance), proprioceptive information (regarding our ability to move), and tactile information (touching and feeling) to help ready the brain for learning. When the VPT sensory processing systems are working well, there is continual activation of the visual and auditory pathways. Students can look and listen better when their VPT systems are functioning well. Even athletes use these techniques to promote better performance.
