No need for parents to say ‘I’m sorry’ at new sensory gym in Bellevue – Bellevue Reporter

A little boy sat on the gym floor, crying.
He continued to have what his mother, co-owner of We Rock the Spectrum, called a “meltdown” as her co-worker tried to figure out what was ailing him.
Ten minutes later, he was calm, reading a book in a special room called the Quiet Room.
The squishy blue floor, trampoline, zip line and specialty rooms meant to engage children with autism are all part of Bellevue’s new sensory gym that opened June 10. The gym is specially designed for sensory engagement, fun and self-care and is part of an international franchise that was started in California.
