We were thrilled to participate in @BringOnTheSpectrum’s grand opening on Friday, March 4! Participants of our Day Community Opportunity Program and art programs had the opportunity to test drive the equipment in the sensory gym, paint in the art room, play games in the game room, and even take part in a small group exercise class.
The Formal Grand Opening ceremony included comments from Bring on the Spectrum’s founder Lisa Audi, OPWDD Commissioner Kerri Neifeld, New York State Assemblyperson Angelo Santabarbara, Colonie Town Supervisor, Peter Crummey, and Living Resources Associate Executive Director, Jennifer Richard. The ceremony culminated when some of our participants officially opened the gym in spectacular fashion- by breaking through the golden wrapping paper that was covering the door.
Bring on the Spectrum is a brand new, 6,000 square foot community space & sensory gym providing social, recreational, and lifestyle activities for neurodiverse children, teens, and adults. They offer social, recreational, and lifestyle activities for individuals of all ages and abilities. Our individuals are excited that this facility is open and available for them to enjoy themselves, be themselves, and experience community. Thanks, BOTS!
