Trampoline Benefits For Kids With Sensory Processing Disorder 

There are so many benefits for children who have Sensory Processing Disorder to bounce on a trampoline. Some call it trampoline therapy and others call it rebound therapy. 

When my children were growing up they spent a lot of time on their trampoline. Trampolines are so popular within the sensory community because they can be so therapeutic.  

Trampolines are great for a child's sensory diet because they provide proprioceptive and vestibular sensory input and can assist with sensory regulation. 

Trampolines can be a wonderful tool for children to release extra energy while strengthening your child's body and building muscle tone. There are many exercises to help children with balance too.

Once children are comfortable they will become more confident on the trampoline and trying new activities and tricks. 

Trampolines make children happier as they can relieve stress for kids. Using a trampoline outside can increase vitamin D which improves their immune system. You can have a lot of fun with games on trampolines by adding a water hose or sprinkler. 

Jumping on a trampoline can reduce anxiety because it can be very soothing and calming to children who have Sensory Processing Disorder. Our kids need sensory stimulation and require movement. 

Children who have ADHD, Autism or Sensory Processing Disorder require a sensory diet to keep them regulated. Jumping on a trampoline before transitions or before doing homework can help them with impulse control and focus better. 

When your child is feeling angry or having behavior challenges you can direct them to use their trampoline. It is a beneficial way to regulate some intense emotions. Trampolines can redirect unwanted behaviors and distract your child. 

Trampolines can be a way for children who struggle to form relationships with peers to socialize and interact with other children in the neighborhood too while bouncing on their trampoline. In our neighborhood, many children came over to use our trampoline which made it easier to engage with other children and make friends. This is a way for a child to learn how to take turns and wait their turn too. 

Trampolines are a great tool for children to stay healthy and get their daily exercise. When a child is jumping on a trampoline it improves their coordination and posture. Trampolines are great for gross motor skills and helps children sleep better. 

When trampoline shopping there are many things to think about. You want to do your research for the safest option for your child. Safety is a priority. You want to choose an age appropriate trampoline for your child. I would suggest asking your child's Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist for which trampolines they would suggest is best for your child because there are trampolines with handles, trampolines for indoor and outdoor use and age appropriate trampolines. 

Ask your child's Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist which trampoline activities would be best for your child and how often they should use their trampoline for their sensory diet daily activities.
