We Rock the Spectrum announces its Developmental Resource Fair — a day for families with children of all abilities to come together in awareness, understanding, and support. The event will be held at 160 Ritchie Highway, Severna Park, MD 21146 on Saturday, April 27th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be local special needs vendors, event sponsors, food, ABA & OCT therapists, rockin’ music plus awesome deals & discounts! It will be a wonderful opportunity for families to become educated about what is available and feel the support of an entire community.
We Rock the Spectrum is a franchise opportunity that provides sensory-safe play for kids with autism, special needs, and neurotypical development. Each gym features ten pieces of therapeutic equipment. This equipment is specifically designed to work with many of the sensory processing issues that children on the spectrum face, while providing all children with the sensory-diet necessary for improved learning and neurological development. For example, the zip line helps children with vestibular sensations and sensory feedback, while allowing them to better develop upper-arm and core strength. Each We Rock the Spectrum location offers unique classes, children’s day camp opportunities, arts and crafts, additional pieces of play equipment, and more.
An autism mom from California, Dina Kimmel, is the CEO and Founder of We Rock the Spectrum. Kimmel opened the first gym in Tarzana, California after he son was diagnosed with autism and struggled to find a safe place where both her and her son and her daughter could go together.
The motto for all We Rock the Spectrum gyms is “Finally a place where you never have to say I’m sorry!”
