If you have attended the Centre’s trainings on Sensory Processing, you will be familiar with Theraband.
It is a resistive material which activates the muscles and joints when used in stretching activities. This type of input can be calming and regulating for children and young people who are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, and has the dual outcome of increasing strength and stability.

Theraband is available in varying grades of resistance, depending on the muscle strength of the individual.
