And Court, S. ’ Brain 85, 603–612. CHAPTER 2 Finding Professional Help for the Clumsy Child Parents are renowned for being excellent observers of their own child’s strengths and weaknesses, even when they lack formal training about what should be expected of a ‘normally’ developing child. Because they see their child playing and interacting on a daily basis with other children, they are usually the first to observe that their child is more awkward than his or her peers. For this reason, unless the child has a specific medical condition that places him or her at risk for developmental delay, it is often the parent, and not a teacher or pediatrician, who first expresses concern about the child’s development and ability to function.

Located within the inner ear, it contains two types of receptors. The otoliths (consisting of the cochlea, saccule, and utricle) consist of tiny crystals attached to hair-like nerves that move in response to gravity, vibration, or subtle changes in head position, thus sending impulses to the brain. The three sets of semicircular canals are filled with fluid as well as hair-like cells, and are each oriented in a different direction. Rapid motion, such as that produced by jumping, rolling down a hill, or riding down a hill on a sled, causes the fluid to surge through one or more of the canals, disrupting the position of the hair-nerves and sending information about the nature of the motion to the brain.

Fast movement causes the fluid in the semicircular canals to flow differently than during slow movement, thus causing a different type of vestibular input. At the same time, running fast requires stronger contractions of certain muscles than running slowly, creating a different type of proprioceptive input. Finally, as we are running, we see objects in the environment changing their position in relation to our body. If we run fast, they move more quickly than if we run slowly, a difference in visual input.
