For children with special needs, it can be important to take a break from scheduled speech therapy and constant structure. Children need opportunities to explore and shake their sillies out while engaging in new activities to simulate their mind, senses and physical movement. They also need opportunities to practice speech skills in new environments (and a highly motivating context can’t hurt). Fortunately for Baltimore Maryland families of special needs children, the Port Discovery Children’s Museum has it all. Across three different floors of educational, interactive and constantly changing programs for children birth – 10, this place makes it a point to engage children with special physical, fine motor or cognitive needs.
If you live in Atlanta or its bustling metro area and have a special needs child, you’ll be happy to know there is a great new place for you to get out and play with your child in an environment that’s safe, fun and stimulating. Often traditional amusements can be overwhelming, noisy and crowded with people who may not understand how your child wants and needs to interact with their environment. This can be frustrating for you and upsetting for your special needs child. But the great news is, this fun new place in Atlanta’s outskirts is specially made for families just like yours – Sensations TheraFun. This is a place special needs kids can play and thrive and special needs parents can relax and enjoy.
