Playtime at the Seattle Therapy Network

Alex Rowley, 5, of Seattle, plays in a sling with dad Dwight Rowley, right, at the Seattle Therapy Network in Georgetown Sunday March 30, 2014. The Seattle Therapy Network specializes in holistic occupational and physical therapy for children with physical and developmental disabilities and their families, and on Sunday mornings, they have an open gym session. "It feels like a great place to practice some of the occupational therapy and get some of their energy out," said Dwight, whose sons Alex, 5, and Andy, 2, are both autistic.

Adana Protonentis, of Seattle, and her son Langston, 3, tumble in a bean-bag pit at the Seattle Therapy Network. "He's a very tactile, sensory-seeking kid," said Adana about Langston, who has autism. "This space where he can run around and blow off some steam is great."

Langston Protonentis, 3, chases after an orange balloon. The open gym session looks a lot different than the normal one-on-one therapy sessions that dominate most of the week. "This is their time to do what feels good," said Carey Goldenberg, one of the clinic directors and registered occupational therapist at the Seattle Therapy Network.
