A few weeks ago I went to a class given by Children's Health Care of Atlanta on Sensory Processing Disorder and appropriate therapies (autism and SPD often go hand in hand). The teacher swore by "single point swings" for vestibular therapy treatments. (See her website for more information if you're curious what that means.) She shared this particular swing from as the cheapest alternative to the much more expensive therapy catalog versions, claiming it would do the job just as well. So here it is, installed in Jacob's room, ready for therapy and fun.

Alexander really loves this swing
(he just doesn't like to smile for the camera anymore)

Would stay here all day.
(He's also using the weighted blanket I made him in these pictures.)
