The vestibular system is essentially the air traffic controller of the body as it regulates how all the sensory systems interact. In this intro video, I will cover 8 different areas of the vestibular system and follow up with a series of videos going over exercises to improve the function of the vestibular system.
"For instance, let’s pretend your child’s brain is sending signals to tie their shoe. Your child must have the balance coordination, muscle tone, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination to complete this one simple task. This is the same for most tasks performed in school, especially when it comes to attention and focus."

The vestibular system is very critical to learning. If it is underdeveloped or has experienced some type of inflammation or injury, you may notice difficulty with reading, writing, attention and focus, behavior and retaining information. Your vestibular system is the guide that sends messages to your brain, which sends signals to the different areas of your body and tells it what to do. The vestibular system is essentially the air traffic controller of the body - it regulates how all the sensory system interact. I'm going to go over 8 different areas of the vestibular system.
1. Visual - tells your eyes what you are seeing in correlation with objects and words.
2. Auditory - tells your ears what to receive, store and recall.
3. Motor Planning - tells the body how to respond to motor skills.
4. Tactile - recognizes textures and sensory information in their environment.
5. Proprioception - how we sense objects and interpret messages.
6. Muscles, Joints and Tendons - tells the body how to move in space - movement and coordination.
7. Hand Eye Coordination - tells the body how to coordinate the eyes with hands for tracking, reading and writing.
8. Behavior, Attention and Fidgeting - helps your actions become automatic so you don't have to think about sitting in a chair, listening to others and regulating emotions.
