Study says, "Bounce Houses are Great for Special Needs Kids."

February 4, 2019

Many healthcare providers are introducing a new type of occupational therapy specifically targeted at children with special needs. This type of play helps kids develop essential emotional and social skills. When special needs children play inside fun, bounce houses they not only have a great time they strengthen muscles and make friends.

 

Bounce houses are perfect play spaces for special-needs children. Children work on their balance, timing, motor control, social interaction, motor planning, and spatial awareness. While playing, children learn to facilitate skills such as eye contact, language, impulse control, sensory modulation, frustration tolerance, sensory modulation, team building, and sportsmanship. The kids also learn foundational skills that help with handwriting, reading, and problem-solving.

 

When creating a play space for children with special needs it is encouraged that you work with an occupational therapist. Occupational Therapists are socially trained to work with the children to help improve the young people's muscle tone and addresses their sensory processing challenges.
