A new gym has opened up for kids that is aimed at helping those with special needs. It may look like other kids' play gyms, but this is a unique facility that helps not only children with special needs, but also their parents.It is called the We Rock The Spectrum Kids' Gym and it is now open in Ballston Spa. These are franchise gyms that concentrate on those children with special needs, sensory issues and those on the Autism spectrum.

The difference in the We Rock the Spectrum gym is that the staff is made up of parents of children with special needs and trained staff that can assist those children with special needs. The unique environment is sensory safe and most of the equipment is used by occupational therapists.

There are three other We Rock the Spectrum gyms in New York State, this is the fourth and the first in our area. For location and times, check out their Facebook page.
