I recently stumbled upon a great article from the Children and Nature Network;
ACCESSIBLE OUTDOORS: Kids with Social, Emotional and Physical Disabilities Go Outside!.
The author Kathy Ambrosini discusses the benefits of getting children of all abilities outside and interacting with nature and includes six steps to help you achieve this. Lots of practical advice and tips on getting outside and having a fab time, well worth a read.
“Once you gain some regularity in getting children out
in green environments you’ll start seeing the results in
their level of self-esteem, focus and participation in social settings.”
