Sensory swings are frequently used in treatment and therapy for autistic children. There are a number of different swing styles, like “soft taco,” “hammock,” nest swings, lycra fabric and solid platform. Children with sensory issues can use swings for proprioception, balance and input/processing stimulation. Our sensory swing installations are secure, durable and life-changing for both children and their caregivers.
Putting a sensory room in your home can help your child with their sensory processing issues. Choosing to install a therapy swing or other sensory soothing devices in your home can be a big decision. However, children of all ages benefit from having access to these sensory rooms and equipment. Sensory rooms help children with autism and other sensory issues: 1. Eliminate distractions and increase relaxation and enjoyment. 2. Promote creative sensory input. 3. Facilitate communication and mobility. Children who have difficult processing sensory stimuli like noise,touch, texture, taste and smell can retreat to their sensory rooms and focus centering, calming and focusing. By removing additional, uncontrolled stimuli the brain of a child with sensory issues becomes stimulated in a different way. Setting up your own sensory room in your home can be extremely helpful for older children who have difficulty concentrating on school work. By allowing them to be stimulated in a controlled environment while they work, many children are able to retain information better and concentrate more fully on their studies. Adding a sensory swing in your home can help provide both vestibular and proprioceptive input for children. These inputs help calm and regulate emotions. Therapy swings can also help with postural stability through working your child’s core muscles as they swing. Therapy swings make a great addition to your child’s sensory room.
