Vestibular Discrimination Disorder

Someone with a vestibular discrimination disorder will find it very difficult to determine their position in space without using their other senses. They find it hard to work out if they are lying down, standing up, or even if they are upside down, if they can’t rely on their other senses for information. For example, if you were to blindfold someone with vestibular discrimination disorder and turn them upside down, they would be unlikely to be able to tell whether they were the right way up or not.

They may also choose to avoid activities involving movement, as they find it very difficult to gauge their own movements.
