THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
Studies have shown that continual jumping practice has improved balance in those with Down syndrome. 
Studies show that jumping may help “envoke automatic and dynamic postural control” in people with Down syndrome. Simply put, this is referring to their ability to sit upright without back support for extended periods of time. 
FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT SKILLS
Jumping rope helps with balance, this in term helps those with Down syndrome perform better fundamental movement skills (FMS).
