Sensory Integration Therapy is commonly used to treat gravitational insecurity. By providing your child with graded vestibular information, he can learn to process information more effectively. 

Sensory experiences are introduced slowly and gradually so your child does not perceive these experiences negatively.

What You Can Do

Physically guide them through activities like sliding, climbing, and swinging.

Introduce Role- Play.

Introduce new activities gradually.

Stop the activities if you feel over stimulated or frightened………
