Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Gravitational insecurity presents significant challenges throughout the lifespan. This poster examines performance of typical adults on a standardized assessment of gravitational insecurity originally designed for children, to determine if adaptation to its use was needed for use with adults. Age, self-reported fearfulness to movement, and performance on individual items were all examined as factors potentially impacting use of the assessment with adults.
