ELASTABLAST ENGAGES ALL OF THE SENSES
As children pull back, they receive important vestibular ( movement) input as they tip their heads and lay down while holding the band.
Young hands are drawn to touch and hold the colorful, soft fleece band. For a young child with autism, it is less threatening to hold the band than another child’s hand and yet the band connects children together.
Children receive valuable information through their muscles and joints (proprioception) with the elastic, rebound qualities of the band and they learn so much about their bodies and how they move in space.
