SWINGING AND SPINNING. If your child loves to spin, swing or both at the same time, then these hammock, swing chairs are exactly what you have been looking for!Swinging and spinning are different ways of stimming for people with autism, but who are we kidding? Everyone loves to swing! It is just fun and can also be calming and relaxing. Taylor was never much of a spinner but he still loves to swing.

Recently we visited our high schools brand new sensory room and Taylor was immediately drawn to one of the larger swing chairs hanging in the middle of the room. He absolutely loved it. I think our bigger kids have a tendency to be forgotten when it comes to sensory toys. While these are not necessarily toys, I was so excited to see something that my 180lbs son could comfortably sit in and enjoy. 

Hammock swing chairs are great for everyone but can really help calm children and adults with sensory issues. Temple Grandin shared a story about when she was young. She wanted to be hugged so badly but when people touched her, it actually hurt her skin. She went on to invent a hug machine for herself that could calm her down when she was in sensory overload.  Even though she couldn’t stand the feel of having anyone’s arms around her, she knew she needed it. Most of the chairs listed below are cocoon like and can provide that calming sensation of being hugged. They are a great tool for parents and teachers alike and are very easy to install to  be used in family rooms, bedrooms, playrooms, classrooms, sensory rooms and therapy rooms. School age kids will also find these great as a study or reading nook, allowing them them to relax and focus on school work.
