Our Special Kids Therapy Gym is a service devoted to kids with cerebral palsy, autism, Down-syndrome and other spectrum disorders, both neurological and physical. Our mission is to develop these kid’s fine and gross motor skills in a fun and safe environment to improve their lives. We want to motivate and encourage parents and caregivers to take part in the activities if they can, to improve the well-being of their entire whanau.
WHAT AGE DOES MY CHILD HAVE TO BE TO ATTEND SPECIAL KIDS THERAPY GYM?
This service is catered to all children aged 3 months to 12 years old, who need extra help with their neurological or physical development. Parents/caregivers who also need help in learning how to assist their child can partake in the Special Kids Therapy Gym sessions. The program for each child is built around their individual needs. Each task and activity they do at our gym incorporates our specialist and everyday equipment to assist in the areas of development that require focus.
WHERE DO I START? HOW CAN I SIGN UP MY CHILD TO SPECIAL KIDS THERAPY GYM?
To get your child signed up for one to one sessions, you will need to contact us to organise a consultation and then fill out our registration form. Once the registration form is filled in and the registration fee is paid, we can discuss the frequency of your visits. Every child is special and unique, so your program will be suited to their needs.
HOW DO THE OPEN HOURS WORK AT SPECIAL KIDS THERAPY GYM?
Special Kids Therapy Gym currently offers one to one sessions (group classes coming soon). Sessions are booked in advance and their duration is 45-60 minutes. When you register with our gym you will be able to discuss the best times for you and your child. There are currently no drop-in visits or open hours as such, all visits will require pre-booking.
