This article is not exactly autism-related, but it speaks to the consequences of the decline of play at the preschool level and how this is affecting sensory processing in young children. Definitely worth a read.
Note: I will be getting back to The Bridge series shortly. My “day job” has a slew of reports due this week, so my brain is a little fried. If I don’t get it out this week, I definitely will first thing next week!
