Vestibular Strengthening

This week in JUMPSTART! (Early Intervention Therapeutic Play Group) therapists focused on the children’s sensory integration needs. Children in early intervention often have difficulty aligning their body senses, specifically their vestibular system. This sensory system provides the leading contribution to the sense of balance and spatial orientation for the purpose of coordinating movement with balance. In this session therapists provided specific movement experiences coupled with auditory and visual input to help support all underlying functioning.
