Sensory Therapy Swing is a fantastic swing for autism. Swinging is beneficial to all children, but those with autism and sensory issues typically enjoy repetitive behaviour such as swinging, spinning and rocking. It is a way for them to calm down and feel “grounded”, it helps to settle their brains so that they can focus a bit better. The cause of sensory issues is disconnection between the brain and the sensory receptors. Swinging as well as other repetitive behaviours triggers those receptors, and helps recreate those connections in the brain.
Sensory Swing can stimulate child’s vestibular system, and provide deep touch pressure. It calms a child immediately, eliminating panic attacks, hand flapping and anxiety. A sensory swing is recommended by occupational therapists since it can provide variety of sensations: swinging, rocking, bouncing, spinning and deep touch pressure, therefore it can be one of the best items you buy for a child with autism.
