STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — “Finally a place where you never have to say you’re sorry,”is the slogan for We Rock the Spectrum Children’s Gym.
The first of it’s kind on Staten Island, We Rock the Spectrum is a “sensory” workout for children with autism, special needs, neurotypical development and other developmental disabilities.
Founder Dina Kimmel launched the franchise in her hometown of Tanzania, Calif. She did it for her son, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, after being unable to find a place that stimulated him and that he also enjoyed.
