"I so appreciate the sense of inclusion this program offers.  Our son receives a variety of therapies, usually in a one on one setting with the therapist or with other children who also have autism. Coming to the gym to participate and interact with other children in such an exciting, energetic setting is a wonderful opportunity for him to learn valuable social skills among his peers. He is more organized with his gross and fine motor planning, has better balance, stamina, and most importantly self-confidence. This program truly is life changing. This one opportunity has helped my son with autism on many, many levels. It has contributed to his social awareness, helped with his sensory processing issues, improved his motor skills, and given him a sense of pride and inclusion among typically developing peers. There are no words to describe how grateful we are to watch our son flourish through this program."
