What Is Autism?
Autism, or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), is a wide-spectrum developmental disorder. That pretty much means that no two people with autism will experience the same symptoms. However, there are a few common threads that link people with ASD. People with ASD typically have issues with non-verbal communication, social interactions, repetitive behaviors, and sensory struggle.
Why It's Important To Us
Trampolines are a valuable tool that can be used as therapy for individuals with autism. Therapists will use trampolines to help children with autism improve how the brain processes and organizes incoming information through physical movement.
Trampolines are also an effective way to cope with stress or anxiety. In the case of kids with autism, children may seek certain sensations (like jumping) in order to calm down.
Trampolines are generally considered a fun activity for the family but for children with ASD. Trampolines could positively impact their development and coping mechanisms significantly.
April is a month designated to help increase the understanding and acceptance of ASD. During the month, we donate a portion of sales to autism awareness and acceptance.
