A network to share best practices for children with special needs
Oh, I bet you can remember this one! A long staircase with all of its carpeted beauty...and you on
your bottom...sliding down....bumpity-bumpity, bumpity-bump! And why do generations and generations of kids crave this input? What's the sensory value? And where can kids get more of this valuable input?
Introducing... Roll N Ride! The wonderful bumpy input to the body activates receptors in the skin, muscles and joints. The input develops body awareness and is a foundation for other physical skills to develop. As the bumps happen rhythmically, with the small rollers of the slide, the receptors receive the input as calming, similar to vibration.
Ahhhh. FUN now...and calm later! Add the calming linear movement of a slide...and this equipment is a sensory masterpiece.
Roll N Ride is a blast! It is popular in sensory-motor rooms, clinics, Wiggle Rooms, and indoor play spaces for ALL children. Roll N Ride Jr. is a total joy ride in Head Starts, early childhood centers, Montessori schools and pre-Ks.
