Do you provide any services in East Valley?
Last month, two speech pathologists in Phoenix started a gym class for people with intellectual disabilities. Yad Sarah knows how important physical fitness is for everyone. We have our own fitness center in Jerusalem for people with disabilities. ABLE FIT
"It is a gym that believes in me!" We love seeing this gym working toward 100% equity, inclusion, and access for all! Way to go, ABLE FIT! https://www.cbsnews.com/news/able-fit-strength-training-classes-phoenix-arizona/
Saw you guys on the CBS snippet and I am IN. LOVE. Iโ€™m also an SLP-turned-CPT and love what youโ€™re doing! I was just certified last year so Iโ€™m still working on building the CPT aspect, but love seeing how you mesh both worlds. ๐Ÿ’š Someday I hope to do the same thing! Keep up the great work!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
