it would be nice for dd to be able to do an activity with her mainstream peers, but any physical activity is generally a bonus......

thanks 006, where is your local rebound centre?

dd is taking part in a trial session(with the hope of the organisers of getting something permanent)which is being held in a local school hall.....
there are very few activities/clubs or social activities where dd can meet up with children with a similar disability

We give respite care to a 9 year old with autism and he goes to rebound therapy. He absolutely loves it, but like 006, not sure what the theraputic benefits are supposed to be. Then again, anything that makes him relaxed and happy has got to be good.

Have never heard of this but it sounds great! DS2 (ASD) loves his trampette and I can get very good interaction with him when he's bouncing. Will google straight away!

we got a big trampoline for dd2. she loves it, and s[pends hours out there on nice days.

did try and persuade dh about a trampoline but he refuses on the grounds that the garden would disappear
boing...boing...anyone else??

DD has had a few sessions with her class (special school) at the local leisure centre as her teacher has done the necessary rebound training. She loved it. It did wonders for the digestion too which is a bonus - not much Movicol needed on those days!!
