Why Trampolines & Sensory Equipment Are So Important for Special Schools

Trampolines and other sensory equipment are often used in special schools in Ireland to provide a variety of benefits for children with special needs. These benefits can include:

  1. Sensory integration: Children with special needs often have difficulties processing sensory information from their environment. Sensory equipment, such as trampolines, can help to improve sensory integration by providing a controlled and predictable environment that allows children to explore and process sensory information in a safe and structured way.

  2. Physical development: Trampolines and other sensory equipment can also provide opportunities for physical development and exercise. For example, trampolines can help to improve balance, coordination, and strength.

  3. Emotional regulation: For children with special needs, sensory equipment can also provide a way to regulate their emotions and reduce stress and anxiety. Activities like bouncing on a trampoline can be calming and provide a sense of sensory input and control.

Overall, trampolines and other sensory equipment can be important tools for special schools in Ireland to support the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of children with special needs.
