AUDUBON, N.J. – Pip Carty noticed there weren’t many places for her to take her son Julian who has a sensory disorder.
“There aren’t a lot of options and for a lot of families the only way to access equipment like this is to be going through therapy and it’s not always accessible for all families,” said Carty, owner of We Rock the Spectrum – Audubon.
So, they decided to open up a gym for such families called We Rock the Spectrum.
The idea is to create a gym for all kids, a place where no parent ever has to say: I’m sorry.
“A lot of our families that come in have a child with special needs, but they find that all of the kids in their family can play here. So, we’re really big on inclusion,” said Carty.
