Occupational Therapists use swing therapy for children with sensory processing disorders (A Sensory Processing Disorder is when the brain has difficulty to receive and respond to information that comes through the body’s senses). It can also be used by parents and other therapists, under the guidance of an Occupational Therapist. Swing therapy helps in sensory integration by giving the child exposure to new sensory experiences, which include body awareness, touch, sound, and sight. Sensory integration can also include input from the vestibular system and vestibular input is one of the core elements of sensory integration therapy. It helps us prepare our posture, maintain our balance, properly use our vision, calm ourselves and regulate our behaviour.
