B.E.S.T. Academy is excited to introduce the newest addition to their Motor Lab: 3-tiered lycra hammocks! These hammocks are designed to provide students with opportunities for both sensory and gross motor input. From a sensory perspective, the hammocks provide deep pressure as they gently hug the student and vestibular (movement) input if the student chooses to gently bounce or swing. Students also receive input to their muscles and joints as they climb between the tiers. The hammocks are also a quiet, calming spot with reduced visual and auditory stimuli. In just the first few days of school, many of our students have eagerly explored and enjoyed the new hammocks. We are excited to have this new sensory tool at our disposal and know it will greatly benefit our students!
