BLOOMINGTON, IL. – Exercise for adults is important, but it’s even more crucial for growing children.
Saturday, a gym for kids celebrated its grand opening with a developmental resource fair and a day full of fun.
We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym is an indoor play-scape that provides a place for children of all ability levels to play and grow together.
Bonnie Brown, a parent of a child with autism, said she’s excited that the gym is open and that she can get her child involved because there aren’t many places like it in her community.
“I think the earlier you can get your kids involved when they have some type of high functioning autism or autism in general is just going to help them,“ Brown said.
The gym is equipped with ten pieces of specialized play equipment. The equipment is specially designed for We Rock The Spectrum Kids Gyms with the developmental needs of children with sensory processing disorders in mind.
