This indoor playground aims to help kids on the autism spectrum – BND Magazine
Inspired by her 23-year-old son who has autism, Jennifer Range recently opened We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Edwardsville, and word — and smiles — are spreading.
“There are not a lot of services available to adults with special needs, so we were looking for a business that we could have that I could run the business, and (my son) Scott could come to work with me so that we could take care of him,” said Range, who lives in Highland with her husband Mike.
After hearing about the indoor playground franchise on Facebook, Range, 49, said she was intrigued and had to see one for herself.
“We went to visit the one in Fenton, Missouri, and I just knew we needed to bring it to this side of the river,” Range said.
