ATLANTA, GA (CBS2/FOX28) – Parents of children with special needs are celebrating a unique kind of entertainment.
Sensations Therafun in Atlanta, Georgia is designed for kids on the autism spectrum, for those with ADHD, Down Syndrome or any type of sensory processing disorder.
The equipment is designed to help stimulate their senses to help them work better, says founder Jay Perkins.
“They know it's their space. There's not a competitive nature to it, not trying to do something better than the kid next to you. The pressure is off. And instead of being anxious, the kids are comfortable.” He says.
Perkins says he sees the positive results ever day; kids doing things they otherwise couldn't do anywhere else.
Holly Firfer takes a look at this playground in today’s health minute.
