Hello WRTS Family and Community! I would like to introduce ourselves. We are the owners of the We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Downey. Our mother, Elizabeth Salas, my sister, Elizabeth Salas Jr., and myself, Evelyn Villarreal Salas, are so excited to start this life-changing journey. Our brother is the owner of WRTS – Long Beach and has really inspired us to open our very own WRTS.
My mother has been married to our dad for over 40 years they have 4 kids and 12 grandkids. Our mom is an energetic and loving person who is always on the move. She is our best friend and is always there for us when we need her.
My sister, Elizabeth, has been married for 13 years and has 2 kids on the spectrum – Dean and Emily. Both are getting therapy and are doing great! Dean was diagnosed with autism when he was 21 months old and Emily was diagnosed with high-functioning autism when she turned 5. We believe this gym will help them tremendously in their development as well as all the kids in our community. Elizabeth worked in a daycare center in Downey for over 10 years which has given her experience working in a kid environment.
I have been married for 14 years and I have a son, Max, who is in Drum Corp and Football. I also have quadruplets – two girls and two boys, which could be a handful at times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! My 2 boys are getting speech therapy and one of them is getting Occupational Therapy for his SPD.
We are very excited to be able to be part of this wonderful We Rock the Spectrum family and to be able to bring this gym to our community for ALL kids and bring some joy in a place where kids, especially on the spectrum, can enjoy all the fun sensory-safe equipment.
Thank you for letting us tell you a little bit about ourselves and hope to see you soon!
