Most of the time when we see a child happily bouncing up and down on a trampoline we understand they're enjoying themselves. But, did you know that trampolines are a valuable tool for improving the lives and behaviours of children with autism?
This common tool for exercise is growing in popularity in special education programmes around the country. Children with special needs often need a practical approach to tasks in order to focus. Parents, teachers and carers need to be creative when considering new methods of engagement for little ones who need a little extra attention. Using trampolines to keep your child entertained is a healthy alternative to jumping on your furniture (not so productive). They love the thrill of rebounding off the mat, skyrocketing into mid-air and we love that they're using up their seemingly endless energy. Here are some of the benefits trampolining can bring an autistic child:
Safety first: Because of the chance of erratic behavior, some parents consider additional safety features a must. It's important that before playtime you place the trampoline in an area that's free of any dangerous objects. Extreme air's safety net is the perfect enclosure for an overactive child, with high quality netting this prevents any accidental falls. We recommend that all special needs individuals are supervised at all times.
