Able UK are a Dubai-based care centre that specialise in helping children with disabilities. Based in Healthcare City, the centre offers support for families in ten different languages, state-of-the-art facilities, parental support groups and new gym for children with sensory integration (SI) issues. Children with SI issues, struggle to process information from the environment around them, the new SI gym however is aimed at helping children interact comfortably with their surroundings.
According to Able UK, the gym aims to serve children affected by a range of SI issues from autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit, learning disabilities, as well as developmental coordination and regulatory disorders.
Able UK’s gym will use a variety of strategic games to assist its young clients through their therapeutic journey, where they’ll be immersed in a world of stimulating sights, sounds, and tastes to help further develop their sensory skills. Even their perception of gravity will be enhanced using a range of suspended equipment including swings, monkey bars, a therapy ball, slide and wall-climbing frame.
