This came by my facebook feed via another OT today.  It’s an excellent article (written by another OT nonetheless) explaining the importance of outdoor time as we view it from a sensory lens.  You do NOT need to be an Occupational Therapist to have your child experience the benefits of nature.  A child’s natural curiosity and energy will lead the way.  Let’s minimize screen time and spend more time outdoors – in the snow, shoveling the backyard, or at the park.  Enjoy the link!
