October means we are in the month of my son’s 5th birthday. Birthdays for my child mean more to us than it may to other families. After suffering a near-fatal Adrenal Crisis at three months old, we weren’t sure that we would ever see his 1st birthday. Every year we do something amazing for him, but this year we decided we wanted to do something special for other families raising children with special needs.
My son is Autistic and a sensory seeker. He loves to bounce, jump, crash and swing. However, he also has hypotonia which can cause him significant fatigue. We purchased a Peanut Ball made by Fun & Function. The Peanut Ball is perfect for children because they can bounce safely while getting vestibular and proprioception input. Children with low tone can benefit because the ball stabilizes their core, and the bouncing can improve core strength and stability. For my son, it has been a win/win. He can bounce to get the input he seeks, and he can improve core strength and stability with each bounce.
