This activity has been revised and was originally created by Vickie Brennan, Flo Ryu, and Dennis Lolli and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992). The second edition is available for purchase.
This activity is designed to help the teacher to identify a means to reinforce vestibular stimulation (that is, activities related to balance), by observing students’ responses to different stimuli. Students will show they prefer a specific activity by smiling or laughing, or by moving toward the teacher with their hand or body, after the vestibular movement has ended. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility.
