Trampolining and activity sessions - ASD and Disability friendly

Several venues not far from Blackburn and Darwen schedule sessions suitable for children and young people with a special educational need or disability.

Energi (Preston)

Energi Autism and Sensory Sessions 5.00pm - 6.00pm

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.

Flip Out (Preston)
