It has been recognised that jumping on a trampoline helps individuals with autism to control their anxiety and to relieve the build-up of stress. Individuals who exercise regularly tend to benefit from positive responses including improvements in physical coordination, positive changes in behaviour, higher impulse control and less behavioural problems.
For families with an individual with autism, regular trampoline usage is not just a great way to channel their child’s sensory stimulation requirements — it can also be a tool to help a child improve their motor skills through games played on the trampoline.
Recognising the importance of having an activity for individuals with autism and their whole family, Energi are proud to launch ‘Energi Friendly’ sessions.

Physical exercise is reported to diminish inappropriate behaviour and such activities like trampolining are also helpful for improving problems of motor co-ordination (Wing (2002) The autistic spectrum: a guide for parents and professionals. London: Constable and Robinson.
