Recently, I visited my friend's house and noticed that she purchased a SensoryHarbor sensory swing for her 7-year-old daughter, who also has ADHD. It's incredible how much her daughter loves it and finds comfort and relaxation in using it. My own daughter also struggles with ADHD, and seeing the positive impact, I'm considering getting one for her too. I'm curious about the underlying principles of how these swings work. Can anyone shed light on this or share their experiences with sensory swings and ADHD?

My ASD child used one during OT and enjoyed it. I then installed a plate swing (long lead line) for her outside. To your point, it's my ADHD child that is more often on it. I like that better satisfying sensation-seeking for motion, but the other swing was more comforting (cocoon like).
