Cheap ways to swing?

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to get a therapy swing for less? Are there any organizations or insurances that help with the cost of all his equipment? I am sorry I am very new to this whole thing so I don't know much about how to get things for my son.

What ever you do leave the credit card at HOME if you go to IKEA, they have cool swings and hooks

the cost of therapy swings can be outrageous. i agree with judi...we use a twin bed sheet. kiddo in the sheet, an adult at each end and go! my son learned the alphabet, colors, shapes, etc. in that sheet and he still enjoys it and we have used it when trying to teach a new skill/language that is frustrating for him.

Use an ordinary swing, hamock. If you own your own house put hooks in the ceiling and then get some lycra, swing chains (local hardware store) and you've got stretchy hamocks. Really cheap option that requires 2 people is use a sheet and swing that, child in the middle adults at either end, lift and swing, bounce, wobble. Remember waiting for queues verbal/non-verbal anything, READY, SET......[wait for it]....GO is what we use. Can also help problem solve after time only hold one end, hide and seek too, try and think of a 100 things that you can do with the sheet
