The assessment takes about 30-40 minutes and is $35.00. After the initial assessment, you and the teacher will decide on a weekly schedule and duration of the lessons for your child. For questions, please call 410-252-3374x112.

This program was founded and developed in September 1996 at Rebounders Gymnastics by Heidi Soerensen, an Occupational Therapist. The program was designed to provide the opportunity for children with special needs to participate in a motor program as an affordable alternative to needed therapies, in addition to therapies, and/or as a recreational activity.

Furthermore, it offers students the opportunity to be integrated in a safe and fun environment with non-challenged children.
