Stimulate the vestibular system with this simple Q&A activity!

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Kathy Heydt and Monica Allon and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

Providing vestibular stimulation will help the student improve balance, spatial awareness and the ability to catch oneself when off balance. This simple activity will meet those objectives. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility.

None

Hints: Watch for any adverse responses, such as avoidance, grimaces, withdrawal or verbal outbursts. Stop the activity if any of these reactions occur. Reintroduce the activity slowly with the student in control. Let him be the guide for how much vestibular stimulation he can tolerate.
