Trampoline exercise is a movement-based program that has been proposed as beneficial for children with autism or sensory integration and processing challenges. This session shares data from a pretest–posttest study documenting motor and psychosocial improvements in children who participated in a structured trampoline exercise group. Results suggest this is a potentially effective school-based or community-based method to address both the motor and the social needs of these children.
