Special Needs Gym Franchise Opens First International Location in Malaysia – Crossroads Today
We Rock the Spectrum, the rapidly-growing franchise that provides a sensory-safe gym for children of all abilities to play and grow together, announces its first international location to open in Malaysia on December 22nd. The company became a franchise in 2014, and in less than two years has grown to more than 60 locations in the United States. Each location features 10 uniquely designed pieces of therapy-based equipment that provide children with the sensory stimulation and input they need for improved development.
CEO and Founder, Dina Kimmel, opened the first gym in Tarzana, California in 2010 after her son, Gabriel, was diagnosed with autism. She struggled to find a place where he could be accepted and understood without having to apologize for his behavior. Upon opening, Kimmel received overwhelming local support — especially from the autism and special needs communities.
