There are plenty of ideas about the best ways to raise children, socialize children, and help children to reach their full potential. Child development and early childhood psychology have advanced in leaps and bounds over the years. Of course, many parental guides apply to “normal” children. As every parent knows, there’s just no such thing. Every child develops at his or her own rate. Each exhibits unique talents and faces unique challenges.
We Rock the Spectrum in Staten Island is a kid’s gym and training facility that caters to all kids of all ability levels, with special focus on providing opportunities for children with sensory processing disorders to learn and grow while socializing with their peers.

At We Rock the Spectrum, kids will enjoy a variety of specialized equipment uniquely designed to improve sensory function. It is especially useful for kids with sensory processing disorders, but all children can have fun playing on the equipment, learning how to master movement and better, learning from each other in an interactive and cooperative environment.
