That trampolines are a favourite to many children in the autism spectre, is no secret to us. But that they can be so effective in promoting verbal communication, was a surprise to me.
Some weeks ago I was jumping around in the trampoline with Jamie, a 6 year-old, non-verbal boy from Virginia. We didn´t know each other particularly well yet, but I had access to his long-term nanny before meeting him, which gave me a big advantage. As an expert on his behaviour, her advise was crucial to me.
