Sensory Rooms for Kids
State: CO, Colorado
Project Type: Sensory Swing
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 by:
- Eliminating distractions and increasing relaxation and enjoyment.
- Promoting creative sensory input.
- Facilitating communication and mobility.
Children who have difficult processing sensory stimuli like noise, touch, texture, taste and smell can retreat to their sensory rooms for 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 by working your child’s core muscles as they swing. Therapy swings make a great addition to your child’s sensory room.

We love working with children and families to help them find the right piece of equipment for their needs and home. Our dedicated team looks forward to working with you and helping you and your child choose the right sensory swing for your sensory room.
Our child spends hours a day playing with his sensory swing. It helps his development and keeps him active for a long time, and mom is okay with that.
