Meet the Owners!
Hi there! We are John and Brandi Boyd and we have three wonderfully unique sons named Xavier, Adam, and Ethan. Our family loves to play, learn, and grow together. You can often find our house full of music and three (or four) active boys. While each child is unique, they certainly love having built-in playmates. We have found that our younger sons, Adam and Ethan, wanted to join in therapy with our eldest son, Xavier, on any day of the week. To them, it’s all playtime together.
You see, our eldest son, Xavier, was diagnosed with autism and has speech delays, sensory processing issues, and social challenges. It has proved challenging finding a place where all three of our boys can play together without judgment and/or overstimulation. For Xavier, many places are too loud, too bright, or too busy. The boys can be having a great time playing and laughing, but we often need to have an exit plan ready at any time. This leads to us deciding not to frequent lots of popular attractions. Xavier needs lots of sensory input every day of the week, many hours a day. He loves to interact with others, but has challenges due to his limited speech and social skills.
While planning a trip and researching autism resources in the Houston area, we stumbled upon We Rock the Spectrum in Katy. We were overjoyed to find a place where not only our three rambunctious boys could play comfortably in a nurturing sensory safe environment, but all children who entered could play alongside others of any ability.
“Finally, a place where you never have to say I’m sorry!”
We vowed to bring We Rock the Spectrum to our area. We know that it will be a blessing not just to our little family but to many families seeking a great place for their kids to play and be themselves. Our family is thrilled to bring fun, inclusive play for kids all over the greater New Orleans area!
