Recognizing Sensory Issues
As autism awareness grows, so does the recognition that kids on the spectrum need spaces to thrive. ASD is a neurological condition affecting how individuals see and feel the world. The intake process for information of every sense, touch, smell, taste, hearing, and sight, is different. Loud sounds, uncomfortable clothing, unfamiliar food textures, hugging, and bright lights can induce anxiety and, at best, be highly distracting for kids diagnosed with autism.
Out of this truth arises the need for sensory-friendly spaces and events. For example, movie theaters and bowling alleys with dimmer lighting and reduced sound. Special days at theme parks with reduced crowds or shorter wait times for neurodivergent kids also help. This principle informs the mission of Sensory Fit Gym, and they strive to provide everything that ASD kids need to explore their interests and have fun without being overwhelmed.
Sensory Fit Gym
This gym is a genuinely welcoming place. It’s spacious, and every corner has toys or other gadgets kids might love. The soft, padded floors ensure any falls or pirouettes are safe and fun. Scattered throughout are playsets for your kids to enjoy. There is a rock wall, a ball pit, swings, hanging bars, ladders, balls, a cornhole set, a bounce house, slides, cushions, and many other games for your kids to explore. The creative-minded can pick up chalk and head to the board to leave their mark.
Since kids can get rowdy and overstimulated, there are also calm rooms if they need a break. These sensory rooms have low blue lighting, soft chairs, and several toys kids can squish, throw, or fidget with to work out jitters and decompress. Staff is always present and careful, ensuring an inclusive environment for everyone.
Sensory Fit Gym is more of what the autism community needs. The thoughtfully arranged space highlights that with compassion and care, we can create community and give our children every opportunity to socialize and be themselves.
