We Rock The Spectrum – a great kids gym to play with purpose!

Dubai has something for everyone, that much is true. But when it comes to finding a safe environment for your kids to explore, develop, get exercise and not be defended with crazy gimmicks  / even crazier kids and parents or over-crowding, the options can be reduced somewhat.

Recently, we have discovered We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym in Beach Park Plaza.

We Rock the Spectrum Dubai is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and fun environment to foster learning, exploration and safe sensory experiences.

It provides children with a fun and motivational environment to help them in the areas of strength, movement, sensory processing, communication, positive behavior modification, social interactions, and self-care skills. Our unique equipment assists all children in their neurological growth and development.

 

The gym features 10 pieces of therapeutic equipment:

  • Suspended equipment with swings – for balance and vestibular treatment
  • Crash mats and crash pillows – for fun, motor planning, and strength
  • Zip line – for stress release and joint and body relaxation
  • Trampoline – for building leg and core strength
  • Indoor play structure – for climbing and increasing playground skills
  • Sensory-based toys – for improved auditory processing and fine motor skills
  • Fine Motor and Arts and Crafts Area – for improved hand-eye coordination and dress up fun

I was lucky enough to have a chat with the beautiful and intelligent Dr. Nashila Farrah Jaffer  and asked her why she has set this up and what was her motivation behind the project.

I have been practicing as a Chiropractor for fifteen years now, and in recent years I have treated more and more children with developmental delays, weak motor skills and sensory issues. This has taken my career on to a more child-orientated path and one that I believe has led me to this point in my journey.

I was inspired by the whole idea and framework of WRTS when I went to the States, and the real test was if my daughters, aged 4 and 6 years, would like it. They absolutely loved it and this is when I knew that the children in Dubai would benefit enormously from WRTS.

My motivation has always been my two girls. They give me a fresh perspective every single day and they are my drive and inspiration.  I am also passionate about raising awareness and educating parents on the importance of movement for all kids to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. Ultimately, it is my goal to improve the lives of children and families here in the UAE, whilst bringing an element of fun through therapeutic play.

To make a great day even better, we were treated to delicious ice cream courtesy of Piccadilly Whippy.
