This article discusses the conditions of the «Self» spatial image development as the first form of self-consciousness. The sense of own movement, the sense of balance and touch are seen as the main sources of the spatial image of «Self». These senses define boundaries of the physical self and mediate the connection between «Self» and the world. The most typical alterations phenomena in the solid boundaries of «Self» development are described. The sensory-motor games are considered as the means of habilitation and correction of the spatial image of the «Self». For the first time psychological analysis of sensory-motor games and their systematization is presented. A brief description of the correction and development program is provided.
