Playground Offers Kids With ASD A Space Of Their Own
[Source: Disability Scoop]
A new play area in Zelienople may look like a regular playground, but for the kids at Glade Run Lutheran Services it is so much more.
The playground, which had its public grand opening this week, is one of less than a dozen in the country designed specifically with children who have autism in mind.
“As there are more and more kids being diagnosed (with an autism spectrum disorder), it’s more and more important for us to have an appropriate environment for them,” said Sheila Talarico, executive director of the Glade Run Foundation.
