Karsten is 9 years old and has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. While autism affects each child differently, some common behaviors people with autism have include difficulty with social interactions and relationships, difficulty with communication skills, and trouble adapting to changes in their routine.
Karsten’s family knew that an Acrobat Swing would benefit him. This swing would help him with strengthening, motor planning (the ability to plan and carry out motor tasks), and calming or alerting him. However, his family’s insurance wouldn’t pay for the swing. HCCI was able to help Karsten and his family by purchasing the swing when other avenues failed.
