Squishy and bouncy balls can be used in a variety of ways to provide therapy and everyday support for your child. For example, sitting on a bouncy ball has been shown to improve behavior, focus and legible handwriting in students with ADHD.
A posture ball is also a wonderful solution for anyone with excess physical energy or for those who crave tactile stimulation. Children who crave additional sensory input can benefit from the stimulation they receive while sitting and bouncing on a ball at school or while engaging with a parent or therapist. Of course, as the name implies, these posture balls are also an excellent tool to help improve trunk strength, coordination, balance. For beginners who are still learning to balance, we carry a selection of saddle-style inflatable therapy balls that won’t budge or topple over easily.
Finally, providing proprioceptive input by pushing balls away or resting balls on the body increases spatial awareness. For this purpose, we carry weighted therapy. Catching, throwing, rolling or kicking these balls also helps to improve dexterity.
