'Swring' appears to help children with autism

A Washington state man has designed a special swing that he says helps children diagnosed with autism.

Emory Clark calls it the "Swring." He says it gets grins and giggles from children who try it.

Clark, a lifelong inventor and grandfather of 11, was inspired by a friend who designed homemade climbing rings.

Clark took the climbing ring idea and put his own spin on it.

The inventor says the Swring (pronounced "shh-ring") helps children develop strength, poise and balance, and it appears to have a positive impact on children with autism who struggle to show emotion and to interact with others.
