Westfield gym for kids with special needs gets new owners

WESTFIELD, Ind. (WTHR) — A gym for children with special needs is celebrating a new chapter after nearly closing.

Carter’s Play Place in Westfield now has new owners.

It opened nearly three years ago as an inclusive gym designed especially for kids with special needs.

Indianapolis-based LEL Home Services has now purchased the operation.

“This opportunity for Carter’s Play Place is a little different than the services we typically provide, so we’re very excited to be able to provide services for younger children who have developmental disabilities,” said LEL Home Services CEO Carmela Toler.

The gym offers occupational, recreational, music, speech, applied behavioral analysis therapies and more. It now includes Medicaid waivers.
