We Rock the Spectrum - Rhode Island
Get ready to rock Rhode Island! Our names are Kelsey and Amanda Simas. We both have passion and experience working with the special needs community. One of us as a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst and the other a Certified Child Life Specialist. We are sister-in-laws and have always shared the same dream, to bring awareness and inclusion to our community. When we learned about We Rock the Spectrum, we immediately felt connected to the mission of inclusion. Because of the lack of play spaces in Rhode Island for children with disabilities, we knew that we had to bring this resource to our community.
“My job has given me the unique opportunity to help children thrive emotionally and physically while facing various health issues. I have found that even in the hospital, children always find a way to play and laugh. I am so excited to bring an inclusive play space to children of all abilities in RI so they, too, can play and grow with their families and build lasting friendships with kids just like them.”
“The families I have worked with have had such an impact on me both professionally and personally. They continue to be my inspiration and motivation. Children with disabilities deserve a developmentally-appropriate place to improve their social, emotional, and physical skills. A place where they and their families can thrive. We can provide this experience through WRTS!”
As young working professionals in the field, we are reaching out to our friends, family and most importantly the Rhode Island community to help us join in our passion to support this life-changing opportunity for children with special needs! All contributions will directly support the building and opening of We Rock the Spectrum – Rhode Island. To find out more about WRTS please check out the website www.wrtsfranchise.com.
We thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
Amanda and Kelsey Simas
