My friend, Alysia’s son Howie
Alysia and her partner, Tina, both autism mamas, have been working around the clock to make SenseAbility a reality for families like ours. They’ve poured their hearts, their time and their money into making this happen.
Here’s their mission …
Community: SenseAbility Gym wants its members to feel welcome, and part of the special needs community.
Safe Sensory Play: SenseAbility Gym wants parents of children with special needs to feel there is a safe place to bring their children for fun, exercise and sensory support.
Acceptance: SenseAbility Gym will have an environment that recognizes that all special needs children are different and that all learning styles, personalities, and abilities are welcome.
Support: SenseAbility Gym will be a place where families of special needs children can go to meet other families who share the same struggles.
That’s it, isn’t it?
SenseAbility is up for a $25,000 grant from FedEx. $25,000 to help create and maintain a safe space for our kids — and for us.
Please vote for them to win the grant. It’s one click, once a day, through Nov 24th. Don’t worry; I’ll remind you. But please start right now. One click to create community. That’s all ya gotta do.
