Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Trampoline exercise is a movement-based program that has been proposed as beneficial for children with autism or sensory-processing and integration challenges. Data is presented from a pretest–posttest study of motor and psychosocial changes in children who participated in a structured trampoline exercise group. Results suggest this is a potentially effective school- or community-based method to address both the motor and social needs of children with autism and sensory-processing challenges.
