Project Description

Autism and the seven senses

vestibularsmall

Do you suffer from motion sickness?  Travelling by car or spinning on a fairground ride can produce sudden changes in body movement that can make you feel very unwell.

What you are experiencing is a sudden and unwelcome change to your vestibular system – the system which regulates our sense of balance and body control. It also contributes to our skills in gross and fine motor interaction, from arms and legs to fingers and toes.
