Rebound Therapy

Rebound therapy improves both high and low muscle tone as well as cardiovascular fitness. It is appropriate for learners who have a lack of awareness of body position, reduced sensation and problems with posture. It does not matter if the learner has a limited ability to communicate as rebound therapy is an enjoyable, stimulating activity that improves self-esteem and confidence.
