Children with sensory processing problems experience too much or too little stimulation through their senses, and struggle to integrate the sensory information they are receiving. Movements such as spinning can help children with sensory processing disorders to achieve an optimal level of sensory arousal and regulation.
Through appropriate therapy and carefully chosen interventions, these children can be helped to make better sense of the world around them, which in turn will help them to feel safer, calmer and more confident. This can help children to achieve improved behaviours and better self-esteem.
Spinning activities are important tools in Sensory Integration therapy. Spinning stimulates the vestibular system. Children who are hyposensitive (those who actively seek sensory input and stimulation) often crave intense movement. These spinning products provide a safe outlet for such cravings. ‘Alerting’ activities involving spinning, bouncing, jumping and skipping can be used in sensory circuits at the start of the day to energise children in readiness for learning.
