The Lou and Mary Henson Gymnasium will be home to the Special Therapies Program which will enhance physical health and emotional well-being. Recreation and special therapies are often the door to the therapeutic process. Teamwork, problem solving, learning to manage emotions when losing and winning, and bonding with a pet all lead to powerful personal insights and transformations. This facility will be a space where creativity and self-expression are encouraged. It will include a gymnasium that can be used for sports competitions, concerts, plays, and all school meetings as well as a fitness room, art and music therapy rooms, and space that is suited for our one-on-one pet therapy programs. The recreation center will also provide a much-needed evening and weekend activity space for our residential students.
