The perception of space or spacioception is a complex sensation that is generated on the basis of the data that comes from the periphery of various senses to the Central nervous system. Sight, hearing, proprioception, touch and vestibular senserepresent sensations of the spacioception system, that allow the living being to experience space, overcome it, create social and cultural construction and survival of the species.Considering the neurophysiology of the sensory space system is essential to understanding the integrity of communication.Within the space perception system, apart from the spatial conceptions, spatial speech and spatial thinking are created because the speech is anisomorph of reality. Thus, a grammar of space emerges, representing the correspondence and analogy between the world and the human being, that is, the sentence of the situation and the verbal sentence. Since the verbotonal system focuses on the individual (subject in the communication process) and on his/herreal possibilities, the rehabilitation of listening and speaking is also closely related to spacioception.Multisensory is one of the fundamental principles of the verbotonal theory and the rehabilitation bythe verbotonal method.Although emphasis is put on the development of all senses and the somatosensory rehabilitation, it should be noticed that vestibular sensitivity represents the spacioception integration.
