10 years ago there few supports for families who had children on the spectrum. Autism Speaks was an invaluable resource for us as a family. They provided education and support. As business owners it was a full circle for us to be able to Light it up Blue, help spread awareness and pay it forward.
A few words from our special jumpers: “Trampolines make me feel good from head to my toes.” “Bouncing makes me happy.” “I can’t explain it, but I do my homework better after a good bounce.”
Many children on the spectrum enjoy rebounding. Our son used to spend hours outside on the trampoline after a full day of school. We didn’t know it then but it helped organize his system. So glad we are able to have an indoor facility to provide all kids a chance to bounce as much as they want.
