ABOUT EXERCISE

Regular exercise has many benefits. Designing a program for a cognitive disabled child is challenging and requires knowledge of the child’s social behavior. Incorporating variety into the fitness program is also essential in order to maintain the child’s interest.

Consider the child’s sensory deficits when planning and identifying exercises and activities that are within the child’s ability. Prevent boredom by exposing the child to combinations of exercise that are repeated no more than twice a week. Feeling a sense of accomplishment builds self-esteem and enhances self confidence.

An effective fitness program will evolve with the child’s progress and the program complexity should be increased gradually as the child masters the program. A successful exercise program will help motivate the child to participate in a healthy lifestyle over the long term.

Note: Special needs children with impaired proprioception may be unable to detect the stretch and pull on muscles and joints that signal the brain to increase or decrease muscle tension. This robs the body of key information needed to maintain good muscle tone and to possibly avoid dangerous activities. Exercises should be performed under close supervision

SEE THIS VIDEO:  Remember, the importance of having a crash pad at home is to help your children build their motor planning skills, which leads to better focus and attention in the classroom so our goal is to continue prepping our kids for higher learning. Activities like these can help calm children, especially if they have anxiety or need that sensory touch to help them concentrate and listen to the teacher in school. It also organizes the brain for classroom projects and strengthens their core muscles.

REVIEWS:

"I purchased this because my severely autistic non-verbal 8 yr old son likes to jump. Little did I know that all kids that have been over just love this. The only words my son has left are "tickle me" so he will lay down on this and ask for tickles and me or my husband jump on and have a tickle fight. We also have a 5 yr old son and sometimes all 4 of us are on here! It is very durable and easy to just wipe clean. "  Cathy K.

"This has truly been a life changing product in our house. My 4 yr old daughter has a high need for physical input and loves to crash into people and other things. We have been searching for ways for her to get the input she needs without hurting others or herself. Since getting this crash pad, we have used it every single day. We tip on its side against the wall so she can run and crash into it. We even use it to "throw" her into the crash pad from over our heads. She loves it and her 2 yr old sister, who does not have any sensory needs, also loves it."  Grace M.
