Walk with me as we imagine the following scenarios…
Imagine Joshua, 12 years old, who has just finished 6 hours of special education. He is looking forward to a few hours where he can just open faucets and play with water without being told, “No! Don’t do that!”
Imagine Cathy, the mother of 7-year-old, Lee, who at 11 a.m. on a Tuesday, brings Lee in to the Autistic Kids Play Place. Lee is in his wheelchair and has cerebral palsy. Lee enjoys the quiet music room and Cathy loves having a place to take Lee where he is happy.
Imagine Xian, a mother of two who has an appointment to take her 3-year-old to the pediatrician for a physical. She calls the Autistic Kids Play Place and makes an appointment to drop off her 8-year-old son, Thomas, who is autistic. Thomas loves the climbing area and the pool and is taken care of by a loving adult until Xian comes to get him after a couple hours.
Imagine Dawn and Kip, who are blessed with 3 children Jack, 10 years who is language delayed and is sensitive to noise, James a rambunctious 8-year-old and Diana a 3-year-old who exhibits some Down’s syndrome symptoms. Dawn and Kip love to bring their family to the Autistic Kids Play Place where they can play without getting any withering looks. They love to see Jack finally playing without having a meltdown, like he does in other play places.
Imagine Marcia, a special education teacher, taking her class of 9 kids with different special needs on their field trip to the Autistic Kids Play Place. Each of the kids gravitates to the areas he or she loves: water play area, climbing area, music room, etc. And all the kids have a great time.
