Toys, Storage, and the Importance of Play with Wendy Valente

To say I am obsessed with toys is an understatement. But it’s not just for the joy they bring my son, there is science behind why toys for children are SO important. For children, play is learning and toys are the tools! Check out my Facebook Live with Wendy Valente of Designing Interiors for Autism where we talk all about toys, organization, play, screen time, engaging in play with your child, and more!
