Provides deep pressure as the child crawls between the rollers for additional sensory input. In a similar way to babies being calmed by swaddling and being wrapped tightly in a blanket, deep pressure can be soothing and relaxing.
Deep pressure is especially beneficial for children with ASD and ADHD, and can help reduce tactile defensiveness in those who cannot tolerate being touched (hypersensitivity or over sensitivity to touch).
Providing appropriate sensory input through a product like this Roller may reduce self-stimulation and self-harming amongst children craving deep pressure. Moving through the rollers can help with motor planning, and can be used as part of imaginative play.
Tension and pressure are easily adjusted to each user’s specific needs – you can choose the appropriate level of proprioceptive feedback for your child. There are 4 settings available by adjusting the bungee cords on the side. The rolls are fully padded which helps the child to relax. Available in red, green and blue – please specify colour choice when ordering.
