Best Selling Nest and Sensory Swings
For years, occupational therapists have been using autism sensory swings.
It's an effective way to teach the body and mind to work together. They provide vestibular and proprioceptive input, which stimulates your child’s senses.
Sensory swings provide significant vestibular and proprioceptive stimulation. Vestibular input is related to movement and comes from the inner ear. It can be comforting or alarming, depending on the direction of the action. Surprisingly, the best sensory input for helping kids balance their sensory needs is proprioception, which most people have never heard of.
Most individuals are aware of the five senses. But most parents are unfamiliar with the sensation of movement (or vestibular sense). The vestibular sense tells a youngster where their body is in space. They can be moving or not, how quickly they're moving, and in which direction they're going.
When you can't provide your child with vestibular activities outside, you can add them to your indoor play space. A sensory swing should allow rotationally and linear movement. Some swings even include a vertical component that enables you to bounce up and down while swinging!
