Sensory swing in ISC

The ISC had its sensory swing installed last week and our students are already enjoying its therapeutic benefits.

Sensory swings are beneficial for young people who have various sensory needs like ADHD, SPD or Autism since these swings can help them improve their sensory processing. Sensory swings help our students to feel safe and help our students to self regulate themselves when their senses become overly stimulated. The smooth back and forth motion of a swing soothes and calms our students when they are experiencing overwhelm. We are so glad our students are already experiencing the benefits.
