Kevin & Lily talk with Laura Figueroa, a pediatric Occupational Therapist and TimberNook provider, about the importance of free play. In recent years the amount of time kids spend playing has gone down while the amount of sensory issues kids are having has dramatically increased (yes, they’re related). Laura shares why we should prioritize free play and stop micromanaging childhood. This is part one of a two-part podcast, so be sure to tune back in for more with Laura!
