Jump, Jump!

The phrase “bouncing off the walls” is one that parents are accustomed to. All that bouncing can actually be a good thing for children with autism and sensory integration disorders. Using a trampoline as a therapy tool, children practice connecting their sensory systems through the repetitive stimulation of bouncing. Dallas businessman John Jenkins discovered that the trampolines he sold were helping children at Asobo Kobo Workshop in Japan – a workshop for children with special needs. Jenkins launched Autism Trampolines and Play Products after learning from his client at Asobo Kobo about the specific benefits children got from the trampolines. The trampolines come in various sizes; enclosures are also available for added safety. Order your trampoline from anywhere in the DFW area and have it shipped directly to your door for a jumping good time.
