Children and adults who are sensory challenged will often use toys that spin or bounce to stimulate their vestibular system - or their inner ear. The inner ear helps with balance and lets the body know when, and how fast, it is moving. Some of our favourite vestibular activities involve playground accessories such as swings, trampolines, bouncers, and rockers. These recreational activities are self-paced and fun, making them ideal for both stimulating the under-responsive child and calming for the over-responsive or sensory seeking child.
