5 Best Trampolines for Children On the Autism Spectrum

Finding the best trampoline for children on the Autism Spectrum is crucial. 

Autism Trampoline Therapy has proven to help individuals with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) develop sensory, motor and educational skills, among others.   

To reap these benefits, though, you need the right trampoline. The right trampoline will have a combination of safety, quality and durability features.   

We are experts in trampoline safety, having built the world’s safest trampolines.  

Below are our expert picks for the best trampolines for individuals on the Autism Spectrum, including indoor and outdoor trampolines.

Essential Trampoline Safety Rules to Follow  

Finding a quality and durable trampoline is the first step to ensuring your child’s safety on a trampoline. 

The next step (after proper assembly!) is setting rules and expectations for using the trampoline.  

These rules for trampoline safety include:  

  • One jumper at a time –75% of trampoline injuries occur with multiple children jumping simultaneously.   
  • Always supervise young children while jumping.    
  • No flips or tricks. 
  • No roughhousing.   
  • No pets.  
  • Don’t go underneath the trampoline.   
  • Jump in the center of the mat (the safest part).   

Combine your safe trampoline with these rules, and your child will be set up to safely jump for the long haul!  

We also want to mention that even if you don't buy a home trampoline, you can still go to indoor sensory gyms, like We Rock the Spectrum, to reap the benefits of trampoline jumping.

FAQ: Autism and Trampolines  

Before we wrap up, let’s cover some general questions about using trampoline therapy for all neurodivergents.  

1. Are Trampolines Good for Kids on the Spectrum?  

Trampolines can be hugely beneficial for all neurodivergents. The controlled bouncing motion on a trampoline provides sensory input, aiding in sensory integration and motor skills development.   

Trampoline jumping is also great for physical health, including cardiovascular system improvement and developing balance/coordination.   

2. Are Trampolines Good for Kids With Sensory Sensitivities? 

Trampolines are beneficial for kids with sensory sensitivities as the bouncing motion can offer a calming effect, helping them regulate sensory input and improve focus.   

The rhythmic bouncing on a trampoline provides a proprioceptive experience, which can enhance body awareness and contribute to improved sensory processing in children with sensory differences 

3. Are Trampolines Good for Individuals With ADHD?  

Trampolines can be helpful for children with ADHD by providing an outlet for excess energy, promoting physical activity, and potentially aiding in concentration and focus improvement.
