As I'm getting back into the swing of blogging more regularly, here are a few things I've come across recently that I think are worth checking out:
-10 compelling reasons from an occupational therapist on why handheld devices should be banned for children under 12.
-Seriously, when you have 15 minutes to spare, read this. There is a reason kids with autism develop a particular interest. Find it and embrace it.
-And then when you have another 15 minutes to spare, watch this. Trust me. It's worth your time.
-Okay, I get it. You're busy and you don't have 15 minutes. But you do have six minutes, so please watch this.

- A Melissa and Doug shopping spree? Yes, please! I love the quality of Melissa and Doug toys and as Ellen points out, so many of these toys are educational AND therapeutic.
-Speaking of giveaways, Friendship Circle's Great Bike Giveaway is back! Special bikes for special kids. So awesome!
