This activity is a fantastic experience which promotes self-determination.
Many people with disabilities rarely get to do ‘daredevil’ activities. But with the giant swing, they can.
Being hoisted up into the air to the ceiling and dropped into a big swing could seem thrilling or scary, but we do it with a system of adaptive harnesses and ropes that make it safe and fun.
As well as providing a sensory stimulation experience, the way we run this session promotes choice and self-determination. For example, each person chooses how high they will be hoisted before they swing, and can pull the release when they are ready to drop.
