Pogo Sticks

Hi I am new to this and ashamed that my granddaughter has seemed to know what she needed all along. All the sensory aides, toys, rockers, etc. I used to try to keep her OFF the glider rocker because she rocked so hard on it she would break it. I have just spent over $500 - mini tramp, scooter, spinning chair, bean bag, push spin top, hammock, and on and on... While jumping on the trampoline it folded up on her and I returned it. For some reason we decided to get a pogo stick instead. I had to help her and remind her to keep it straight but she LOVES it!! This is a 9 year old who has no interest in learning to ride a bike without training wheels. I am surprised at how persistent she was and went from no jumps to her new record of 11 overnight.

I hadn't seen anything on pogo sticks and wanted to share and wonder if anyone else has tried this for sensory seekers.

pogo sticks for hyperactivity and sensory overload
by: Anonymous

I am a 48 year old women who never "grew out" of my hyperactivity. I had a pogo stick as a child and wore out the rubber many times. I jumped everywhere. My friend just posted on FB about the benefits of a pogo stick for ADHD, and I just found a site that sells adult pogo sticks. Guess what I am getting!! I still get on overload often and maybe I need to Jump a bit everyday!
