A local pre-school program has teamed up with CDTA and Proctors to bring this multi-sensory gym mobile and I love the opportunity this will bring to local children with Autism.
CDTA has donated a bus to the Spotted Zebra Learning Center so that the Bizzy Beez Activity Center can go on the road, according to the Times Union. The Bizzy Beez is “an indoor, multi-sensory environment for kids of all ages to move, touch and swing their way through different settings.” The point is to enhance a child’s development with their motor skills, self-esteem, creativity, and cognitive development. The bus made its debut at a recent “The King & I” performance at Proctors Theatre.
I’m so happy for children in the area to have this ability and to have it mobile so more children can access it. With their partnership with Proctors, they’re hoping to have the free sensory gym open an hour before certain performances and continue to provide support throughout the performances. If you’ve never visited the Spotted Zebra or its Bizzy Beez Activity Center, take a look at all they have to offer through their website.
