This practical resource explores the benefits of therapeutic trampolining on children and young people with special educational needs. It supports practitioners as they introduce the trampoline into their own therapeutic settings.
Trampolining is known to improve balance, co-ordination and motor skills; it can improve bone-density and benefit the lymphatic and cardiovascular systems. It has even shown to encourage communication in children with autism and PMLD.
This book draws on the author’s extensive experience of delivering both the British Gymnastics Trampoline proficiency award scheme as well as the Rebound Therapy trampolining programme. The book also explores the practical side on how to set up and deliver trampolining as a therapy in schools, clubs or in the home.

This is an invaluable resource for anybody looking to explore therapeutic trampolining as a way of enhancing the physical and emotional wellbeing of children and young people with special educational needs.
