5 Benefits of a Saucer Sensory Swing

Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

Curious about saucer sensory swings? We explain 5 benefits this swing has for your child with special needs.

What is a saucer sensory swing?

A Saucer Sensory Swing is a swing that helps kids gain a sense of motion, balance, gross motor skills, and more. The calmness of the swinging can help children who get over-stimulated. 

Why would a child need a saucer sensory swing?

Saucer sensory swings are therapeutic tools for children with sensory processing disorders but benefit all kids. They also provide a comforting and secure environment.

Benefits include:

1. Sensory stimulation

Sensory swings provide a controlled environment for sensory stimulation. This helps the child develop coping mechanisms for sensory overload.

2. Soothing effect

The gentle movement of the swing can have a calming effect on the child. Thus, reducing the feeling of anxiety and stress. The swinging motion can also help the child feel relaxed and happy.

3. Improved focus and attention

The swinging motion helps the child focus on movement and adjust their body accordingly. This can improve their ability to focus and concentrate.

4. Development of gross motor skills

Swinging can help the child better understand their body’s position and improve their coordination.

5. Improved balance and motion

Sensory swings can help develop balance and coordination skills. The movement of the swing challenges the child to stay balanced and use their core muscles.

 

Saucer sensory swings are very beneficial for children and can help them improve crucial skills. If you are in the West Palm Beach area, schedule a tour to check out our saucer sensory swing!
