Hello all, it's Elizabeth Bouinatchova, the owner, here. We're trying to figure out what resources we can offer for families, children, and the special needs community. We have a great autism therapist who is hoping to lead some activity groups. What would you like to see? Crafts, poetry, music, sports?
I have noticed that my two boys, one with autism and one with a combination of physical and neurological injuries, are very soothed by physical activity. Intense physical activity. The more intense the activity, the more calm and focused they become. We make use of everyone's favorite indoor play spaces - if you're not familiar with them, you should definitely see if either of these has a location near you and check it out!
But we were thinking of something a little more focused. What about boxing classes? Check out this very interesting article.
One of our neighbors here at Silver Park is a fabulous boxing coach who works with kids and adults alike. We'll keep you posted as we work out hosting some classes and sessions with him. In the meantime, reach out yourself! Phone or Facebook is best; the email on his website may not be working.
