Autism - Balance

30th August 2014
Balance (vestibular)

Situated in the inner ear, our vestibular system helps us maintain our balance and posture, and understand where and how fast our bodies are moving. People with an ASD may experience the following differences.


A need to rock, swing or spin to get some sensory input.


Difficulties with activities like sport, where we need to control our movements. 

Difficulties stopping quickly or during an activity.
Car sickness.

Difficulties with activities where the head is not upright or feet are off the ground.
