We purchased this Obstacle Course Set as well as a Rock Climbing Set for our ADORABLE kids in the Center. There was a little delay in setting it up however our Contractor is available again this month... so we are on path.
I am as excited as a child and can't wait for the installation to begin.
This Set is an addition to our other Occupational Therapy Equipment . How does it help our kids?
A Recall .......
Sensory Integration Therapy:
The 7 senses : taste , smell, touch (tactile), auditory, smell, PROPRIOCEPTION and vestibular ( balance)
Well this equipment serves 1 of the 3 most important basic senses that must be corrected before the child can move on. The proprioceptive sense, highlighted in yellow at level one of the sensory pyramid
It uses all of your child’s major muscle groups in coordination and provide great proprioceptive input
Hanging by the arms or the legs stretches out the muscles and engages the joints and ligaments.
Additionally it also provides deep pressure to the muscles, which has a calming and organizing effect on the brain and nervous system.
For parents who have a child with special needs, we have more material available for you. Join our FREE MEMBERSHIP program. This is in line with our initiative "Parents as Therapist".
"Parents as Therapists" : Enabling parents to become their child's therapist when there is no or not enough access to therapy available.
According to evidence based practice, your child needs a minimum of 20 hours of therapy a week.
