Got-SpecialKids knows the importance of indoor swings, both for special needs children and adults. Our selection will allow you to create a sensory environment that's suited to the individual needs of your child, teen or special needs adult.
Most of us don't think about the way our brains process information on a daily basis. But if you care for someone with a sensory integration disorder like those on the Autism spectrum, the challenges he or she faces when confronted with sensory information are regularly apparent. Sensory integration disorders can result in over-sensitivities to outside stimuli such as sound or touch, difficulty engaging in play and conversation, and uncoordinated behavior due to vestibular deficiencies.
When special needs children, teens or adults have the opportunity to swing, we give them a chance to achieve a variety of goals, from balance to relaxation.
We offer a variety of indoor special needs swings to meet those goals. For those who crave deep pressure sensory input such as firm holding or squeezing, we recommend a snug swing or sensory wrap. We also carry a variety of other soothing swings for disabled adults and children, including hammock swings, tire swings and more.
For kids or adults who experience vestibular dysfunction, swinging can restore equilibrium and teach motion tolerance by moving fluid in the inner ear. Our selection of occupational therapy swings can be used at home or during therapy for this purpose.
