Rebound Therapy

Rebound Therapy is a fun and interactive activity using trampolines that can not only influence a person’s physical function but also participation, communication and sensory system. Speech and Language Therapy/Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy targets can be incorporated into rebound therapy. Intervention can be further enhanced by using games such as counting, teamwork, silly sounds, finding specific colour flash cards, identification of images or colours.
