Developmental Outcomes and 'Firsts'

We’ve seen some incredible results since our first Pop Up back in 2018.

These are just a snapshots of the developmental outcomes, firsts and memorable moments that have taken place at Gympanzees.

  • A 10-year-old took off ear defenders for the first time in public. 
  • A 47-year-old having her first ever independent bounce on a trampoline 
  • A 12-year-old boy never sleeps, slept for 12 hours after his visit to Gympanzees.
  • 2 mums feeling isolated – talked it through and gave each other   ideas and then swapped numbers.  
  • A young boy was comfortable enough to open his hands and play with the sand. Parents said they never see his hands open.
  • A 6-year-old boy who had only ever walked a few steps walked on the treadmill for a huge 12 minutes and then proceeded to walk a full 15 meters on his own outside. 
  • An 8-year-old wheelchair user walking in our equipment for 3km 
  • 2 families, with 2 boys playing separately. By the end of the session the 2 boys playing together – then decided to make friends. Non-verbal playing through balls – parents both said this never happens.
  • 57 children and young people who were able to walk in our specialist equipment for the first time.
