Vestibular Input on ASD and ADHD


The vestibular system helps our brain maintain track of our motions and orientation to items around us. When the vestibular system is malfunctioning, we may experience dizziness, unsteadiness, and difficulties maintaining our balance.

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may be more sensitive to vestibular stimulation or crave sensory stimulation than normal children, according to evidence. These distinctions may manifest as:

Sensitivity: fear and detest motion, have dizziness, vertigo, nausea from changes in position, are sensitive to light and sound, have balance problems, anxiety, and suffer from motion sickness.

Sensory seekers have a tendency to spin, whirl, swing, rock, leap, or bounce. More difficult than other children to sit still.
