How Sensory Therapy Can Help Children:
Use of a Sensory Gymnasium: Provides Structured Play (Sensory Therapy) for Kids With and Without Disability
Kinetic Kids, home of Charlotte’s first sensory gym, provides a structured environment for children with and without special needs. Our sensory gymnasiums help all children, regardless of whether or not they have a disability, to develop their sensory, communication, gross and fine motor skills (Dean, 2015). In addition to providing health and fitness benefits of a regular gym, sensory gyms also enhance a child’s self-esteem and social skills.
