Kavita Jain wanted a place where both of her sons could play comfortably. She found a shared ethos with We Rock the Spectrum, a gym meant to be inclusive for all children, including those on the autism spectrum and who have disabilities.
“As a family, it’s always been hard for us to go into any kind of play space for him, just because it’s too overwhelming for him — it doesn’t meet his needs,” says Jain, whose 11-year-old son has autism and behavioral needs.
As a parent of a child with special needs, Jain says she finds herself constantly saying “I’m sorry” if her child is having a meltdown. The gym’s motto is “A place where you never have to say ‘I’m sorry.’”
