“The vestibular system closely interacts with some of the other senses to help better process information that we receive from our environment and from within our own bodies, including the visual and the auditory senses.
Therefore, not only is the vestibular system involved in things such as balance, coordinating movements and the development of muscle tone, it is also important in maintaining a stable visual image, maintaining attention, and some parts of language development through its interaction with our senses of sight and sound.” – Early Intervention Support
