Autism in Ocala:   We wish to open an Autism center here in Ocala Florida.  As previous board members of Ocala Autism Support Network, we were able to see first hand what families who have children on the Autism Spectrum needed and were missing.  In an effort to be able to provide these services, therapies and assistive devices, KidGenius was born.

Foam Balance Beam


This donation will allow us to purchase a foam balance beam.  This foam balance beam can be used with the flat side down or the flat side up, offering endless opportunities for exercise and play. When possible, use the balance beam without shoes for extra feedback to the feet and joints. On a single balance board put one foot in front of the other to practice balance. When you're comfortable with position, make it more difficult by squatting in the same position. Alternatively, place the round side down and lay with your spine along the balance beam. Raise one leg off the ground while continuing to maintain balance.
