April is National Autism Awareness month so out of awareness for all dealing with Autism, we wanted to highlight 3 Simple Ways to Make Your Playroom Special Needs Friendly! Autism is showing up across the US in our children at a rapid rate of 1 in every 68 kids! Currently there is no cure but there are several ways to make your home environment feel super cozy for the most important love ones in your life, your kids!
1. Start by choosing softly colored paint to put on your walls and keep the center of the room open to provide space for exercise items such as a mini trampoline or balancing board or small slide. These items can be used to build muscle tone and provide exercise!
2. Use cozy sitting furniture with soft pillows and thick blankets to provide sensory comfort and perfect opportunities for a good cuddle!
3. In bins or baskets store puzzles, play dough, books, textured items, and your child’s favorite things. This provides time to stimulate the brain, interact socially with your child, and most importantly have fun!
The goal for many parents is to provide a loving and creative environment for your children and with the simple tips above your playroom can be extremely special! Our Beaufort Craftsman floor plan offers lots of space for a growing family and includes a guest suite that can easily be used as a playroom.
