We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym to host grand opening Saturday

A new We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym invites the public to its grand opening celebration on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 12357 Academy Road in Parkwood.

We Rock the Spectrum provides sensory-safe play for kids with autism, special needs and neurotypical development, although all families with children are encouraged to attend the open house.

Founded in California, each We Rock the Spectrum franchise features 10 pieces of sensory-safe gym equipment specifically designed to work with many of the sensory processing issues that children on the autism spectrum encounter, such as trampolines, swings and zip lines, while providing all children with the sensory diet necessary for improved learning and neurological development.

Each gym offers classes, day camp opportunities, arts and crafts, additional play equipment and more.

The Nov. 12 event is open to all children and their families regardless of developmental level. Admission costs $12 per child with 20 percent of proceeds to benefit the My Brother Rocks the Spectrum Foundation. ••
