This study examines sensory functions in children with ITW and establishes a framework to detect sensory differences underlying ITW. Our results showed that ITW is related to sensory-processing differences, particularly in the area of vestibular processing. A small number of participants also showed differences in tactile and proprioceptive processing. Identifying sensory functions that underpin toe walking will contribute to targeted treatments for ITW.
