Adapt and accommodate

Accessibility in your environment is as fundamental as fresh air and a welcoming smile at the door.

Here’s how to do everything – from creating comfortable spaces, to simple modifications you can make to everyday toys. Sometimes, it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference.

Creating a Calming Environment

Positive adult-child relationships along with intentional planning of the physical environment contribute to a child’s sense of security.  Creating a safe, nurturing space that has predictable routines and takes into consideration the children’s sensory needs can increase a child’s resilience and self-esteem.
