Hello, we'd like to tell you about High Altitudes' Special Needs Sessions. Trampoline play is stimulating for children of all abilities, specifically those who need a little extra help developing gross motor skills. The trampolines promote whole body movement and balance while the High Altitude team encourage children to follow directions and focus their attention.

We offer 3 dedicated sessions. A session which is only for children with special needs, a session which allows their siblings
to bounce too, or for children with more complex emotional and physical needs a dedicated Rebound Therapy short course.

Special Needs Session Only
TIME: Tuesdays ­11am-12pm & 12pm-1pm
PRICE: £5pp + 1 x Carer goes Free
Family Session (Siblings too)
TIME: Thursday 4pm­5pm
PRICE: £7.95pp + 1 x Carer goes Free

High Altitude provides recreational opportunities to groups and individuals across the whole spectrum of disability and impairment, including autism, ADHD, cerebal palsy, cystic fibrosis and Down's Syndrome. Many children and young people, with complex needs and/or challenging behaviour reap wonderful benefits from our facilities and trained staff.

Participants are supervised by trained therapists and take part in both passive and active bouncing in a variety of positions including lying, sitting, kneeling or standing. This is not gymnastic trampoline, but a method used to improve motor skills and help meet other needs. It's main aim is therapeutic and not sporting.


TIME: Tuesdays 11am-1­2pm and 12pm­-1pm (Term Time)
DURATION: Total 1hr ­ 1/2 an hour of tuition (student willing)
