What is Rebound therapy?
In Rebound therapy we use a large trampoline as a safe and comfortable environment to help children improve a range of physical and cognitive skills.
We offer Rebound therapy as it works well alongside Conductive Education, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. The trampoline provides an opportunity for your child to work on posture, core stability and balance. It’s also a fun experience.
How can Rebound therapy help?
It can help your child with their:
- movement and balance
- muscle tone
- fitness and exercise tolerance
- concentration skills
- communication skills
Who are these sessions for?
Our one-to-one sessions are suitable for children aged up to 15 who have physical and/or learning disabilities.
What happens in the session?
Our trained instructors will devise a Rebound Therapy Plan tailored to meet the child’s individual capabilities and needs. The aim is to help the child gradually increase their range of movement on the trampoline, whether that’s lying, sitting, standing or bouncing. We record the child’s progress each week using an internal evaluation tool.
How long are the sessions and how often?
We offer one-to-one sessions of up to 30 minutes (depending on the individual child’s needs) once a week during term time.
Should parents attend?
We ask parents to come along with their child. The instructor may ask you to assist during the session as a ‘spotter’, standing at the side of the trampoline.
Is there a fee?
£20 per session, to be booked in term blocks.
How can I book my child for Rebound therapy sessions?
As with all our services, we ask you to bring your child to our Centre for an informal assessment first.
