Our Breakfast TV feature Thursday 22nd January 2009
Karen Insley, President of Aspen Fitness Inc. and local mom Holly talking to Jon Ljungberg about how beneficial the fitness equipment is to kids who have autism and for children who have special needs
Holly's son has autism and he insisted that he help to demonstrate to the viewers just how much fun he has on the equipment and he totally stole the show by taking Jon Ljungberg's microphone from him so that he could thank Karen personally live on TV
Holly was quoted as saying "My son introduced me to Karen at the Terry Fox Run in September 2008 and I was inspired at how this equipment captured his interest and kept him engaged for so long. His attention span is limited and he played and worked out happily on Karen's equipment for the majority of the day and I cannot wait until my sons school division incorporates this equipment into their Phys Ed and Occupational Therapy curriculum"
We believe that exercise should be fun and accessible to all children, whatever their abilities
Please contact us via phone or email to find out more about our equipment and how it can help your special needs child, and don't forget to check out our rebounder article and see how our mini kids trampoline can aid the health and fitness of your special needs child too
Would you like your child to try out the equipment so you can see for yourself just how beneficial it is to them and to see just how much fun they have on it? If so we can arrange a free demo at your school, daycare or centre and will even leave the equipment with you for a few days so that it gives you the opportunity to fully appreciate just how this can complement your child's Occupational Therapy and Physical Education
Our regular line of equipment can be used by special needs children and children with autism, but we have recently launched our "Access Range" that has been fully adapted for use by children with physical disabilities, so please ask us for more information on all our products and check out our homepage as we now have our Access Units available for sale online.
