Sensory Playgrounds.

As I spend a lot of time doing respite with children with special needs I am always looking for different fun and exciting things to do. My newest kick is sensory playgrounds. These parks are completely accessible playgrounds built with kids with disabilities in mind. In my search for accessible playgrounds on the internet I found information about the parks not all that helpful because of some of the kids I take care of I find it quite helpful to know a little about the park before I go so I know what to expect. Since I couldn’t find much information I’ve decided to post about the different parks I’ve been to in hopes to help out someone along the line. More on that later. Stay tuned, the first park will be Nick’s Dragonfly Playground in Guelph Ontario.

It’s been a while.

Hola amigos.

This is one of the most powerful videos I have seen in a while. You really never know what is going on in somebodies life and this just proves it. Kids should not be made to feel like this. It’s really not acceptable at all. This kid was thirteen and felt like that. craziness. It needs to stop. Jonah has uploaded a few more videos and he is really doing much better now. Thank you Jonah for sharing these deep thoughts and I support you. ❤

 

Peace and love.
