Sensory play is becoming very popular and with reason. It is now part of our everyday life. When we got pregnant, I had no idea how it would play a vital role in our daughter’s development. Nor did I expect all the challenges that would be presented to us along the way.
My son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three. He is now 21-years-old.
Back in those days, parents were given the diagnosis with virtually no information regarding treatment, resources, education or help of any kind. It was pretty much a “yes, your son has autism… don’t hit yourself with the door on the way out” kind of an approach.
