Sensory Gym in Plano Welcomes Kids on the Autism Spectrum

We Rock the Spectrum, a sensory gym in Plano, offers a safe space for kids of all abilities according to an NBCDFW article. They say,


“A new sensory gym in Plano, We Rock the Spectrum, is a new experience that is a safe place where kids with autism and other different abilities can come and be kids. 


“We really are a place where we celebrate all differences,” said Taylor Wiesner with We Rock the Spectrum. 


They can swing, zipline, jump on the trampoline – and never have to feel like they or their parents should say sorry.”


The gym’s mission is ‘play with a purpose’ which means that while kids are playing, they’re working on their motor skills and even includes a calm room according to a Dallas Morning News article which observes,


“There is also a calming room for kids who are having a rough day,” he told NBC5.


“Every part of our gym is accommodated for a child with special needs. One of our missions is ‘play with a purpose,’” Wiesner told the TV station. “So while kids think that they’re playing, they’re really working on motor planning, balance and strength and coordination.””


The grand opening was held on July 23. The children’s sensory gym has since expanded into a franchise.
