Bounce-ability (Specialised Sessions)
It has long been recognised that physical activity is beneficial to those on the autistic spectrum. This is why Jump Xtreme offers these dedicated sessions.
The phrase "Rebound Therapy" was coined by E.G. Anderson, in 1969 to describe the use of trampolines in providing therapeutic exercise and recreation for people with a wide range of special needs.
Participants range from mild to severe physical disabilities and from mild to profound and multiple learning disabilities, including dual sensory impairment and autistic spectrum.
“Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, muscle tone, promotes relaxation, sensory integration, as well as improving fitness and exercise tolerance, whilst aiding the development of communication skills.”
Our autism friendly sessions are designed specifically for those people on the autistic spectrum, and their families, to enjoy.
Our sessions run from 6pm-8pm on the last Wednesday of every month.
What makes the Jump Special Jumpers session beneficial?
- The number of participants is kept to a minimum, and the trampolines are available for that session only.
- There is no stress involved and the music is turned down.
- A parent/carer can enter the trampolines for free when accompanying the participant and is encouraged to take part in the session.
