First of all (stands up tall on kitchen chair), EVERY PLACE in San Antonio should be inclusive for families and children with special needs. In my experience, I have found that our city is an inclusive mecca: less stares, more holding the door open, and just an overall willingness to be accepting. We are the proud citizens of the first all-accessible theme park, a place people all over the world come to check out. As a parent of a child with a disability, safety concerns and accessibility are a priority when we explore our city.
Here is a list of seven San Antonio gems for families that have some extra worries, such as children with sensory needs, those who like to stim loudly/have self-injurious behaviors/run away, and those who may need extra space to accommodate wheelchairs, because ALL children deserve to have a blast in this wonderful city of ours!
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym was founded to provide a place for children of all ability levels to play and grow together. As the only kid’s gym that offers an inclusive philosophy, children benefit from their uniquely designed sensory equipment that is specifically designed to aid children with sensory processing disorders. However, all children are able to benefit greatly from this equipment, and by allowing children of all ability levels to play together they are able to learn a great deal from each other and become the best motivation for success on every level.
