BELLEVUE, Wash. — A new gym in Bellevue is designed to suit the needs of children on the autism spectrum. The gym is also open for all kids, not just ones on the spectrum. It’s an inclusive space for children to play and have fun and parents to bond with other parents.
From treadmills and cocoon swings to trampolines and ziplines, the We Rock The Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Bellevue opened its doors to a community eager for a special place for special kids.
“They were so full of joy, they loved the zip-line, everything they touched was just designed for kids with autism, a lot of other kids here as well, with the same thing, so it’s nice for them to have peers like that as well,” said Randall Casper, a father to two young boys both on the autism spectrum.
