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!
