A fun and upbeat movement-based group class on mini trampolines!
The group is run by experienced Occupational Therapists and supports development of social engagement and shared problem solving. At The Rebounders the groupwork parallels what happens on the playground in a safe environment designed to meet every child where they are at and to ensure success. Our strengths based approach supports regulation and is designed to improve sensory processing and integration skills.
This class is available to children ages 4-10 with sensory processing challenges as well as their siblings and typically developing peers. It works to promote coordination, endurance, social skills, confidence, and safety in children with and without disabilities.
The classes are following two research projects examining effectiveness of the class. In the first pilot study conducting in Fall/Winter 2016, the findings suggested that group trampoline classes may be effective in improving motor difficulties of children with and without SPD. All children improved on the M-FUN gross motor subtest from pre-testing to post-posting. Also, trends showed that the majority of the children also improved in M-FUN fine motor and visual motor from pre-test to post-test. There were noticeable changes in the children who attended the class that were not formally assessed as well, including improved self-confidence/self-esteem, increased interactions and socializations among the participants during class, and increased play ideas/themes created by the participants.
