Kids with Autism Benefit from Trampoline Exercise

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TRAMPOLINES FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

Posted by Kinsey Harris on 

It has been studied and proven that regular trampoline use promotes weight loss, detoxifies the body and strengthens the immune system. However, many people do not realize the Health Benefits of Trampolines for Autistic Children and adults. Rebounding on a trampoline can drastically improve the lives and behaviors of children and adults with special needs.

Research has shown that children with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome can benefit from regular exercise, and that trampolining in particular can provide many additional benefits. Sitting or bouncing on a trampoline can help to increase coordination by improving their bilateral motor skills. Trampolining itself is a very gentle form of exercise due to the fact that the bouncy trampoline pad soaks up a large proportion of the impact.

The activity of trampolining can provide children with a great sense of fun and well-being. Being outside allows children to get fresh air and sunlight, both of which provide their own health benefits. And allowing siblings to join in with the trampoline fun can also help to provide huge social benefits to children with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

We host a weekly special time for children with sensory issues and Autism. Please join us Tuesdays from 6pm – 7pm for a quieter less crowded time and support from the staff at Giant Leaps Occupational Therapy.
