Astronaut Program:

  • This is a program designed by Mary Kawar, OTR.

  • It is based on Sensory Integration Theory and is a comprehensive treatment protocol that integrates the vestibular (movement and gravity), visual and auditory (sound) systems to provide a better "spatial map" to efficiently navigate the world.

    • This "map" is needed to know where you and others are in space, how fast you and others are moving through space and in what direction you and others are moving.​

  • The program begins with activities using the "Core" to provide necessary information about the effects of gravity on the body, eyes and ears. This is followed by a series of rotations on a large board to provide the necessary information about circular movements and the starting and stopping of movement.

  • All activities are coupled with sound and visual activities.
