MILWAUKEE -- For most kids, playtime is something that is enjoyable. But for children with Autism, playing with toys can be overwhelming. Kara Rivera with Penfield Children's Center joined the Studio A team to talk about ways to introduce toys to children with sensory issues.
About Penfield Children's Center (from website)
Penfield Children’s Center is named in honor of Dr. Wilder Penfield (1891-1976), a world-renowned neurosurgeon who strongly advocated early intervention for children with developmental delays and disabilities. His quote, “never underestimate the capacity of the very young, and never, never let them down,” has been the foundation of Penfield’s mission since 1967. His knowledge and wisdom underlie our philosophy of care for infants and young children even today.
