Special needs children’s gym opens in Wetherill Park – The Leader
May 18, 2020 | In:
We Rock the Spectrum, a children’s gym, featuring therapeutic equipment and sensory beneficial play opportunities for children with autism and special needs, has opened its doors in Wetherill Park, in Sydney’s west.
We Rock the Spectrum is an international children’s gym franchise and features equipment 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.
Dina Kimmel, the CEO and founder of We Rock the Spectrum, opened the first gym in California after her son was diagnosed with autism and she struggled to find a safe place, where both her son and 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!’
After spending many years trying to find inclusive and sensory-safe social opportunities and events for her own family, Maritza Aguirre is excited to open We Rock the Spectrum Sydney West. A place where children of all abilities and their families can come to play.
Aguirre and her family, husband Louis and their four children, including a 12-year-old daughter with autism, are passionate about impacting the special needs community by providing an NDIS registered sensory-beneficial play space for inclusive play, respite, therapeutic supports, parties, all-abilities classes, and group activities.
Whilst We Rock the Spectrum Sydney West, is unable to open to the general public as planned, due to current COVID-19 restrictions, as an NDIS registered provider they will be opening for private sessions and respite for individual families.
We Rock the Spectrum Sydney West will be opening in Wetherill Park for private sessions from May 16th, 2020.
Further services will be offered as restrictions are eased.
