An Orion Favorite: The HOPSA dress

I enjoyed attending Active Learning workshops here in Austin so much I went twice and I would go again. There's always something I overlooked or a new perspective on play for kids with additional needs that I realize. All our kids' job from birth to 5 years old is to PLAY! In Orion's case, we'll encourage him to keep on playing no matter what. We can see he tries new things physically and he enjoys it immensely. His glee is contagious!
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon

Here's a 5-minute snippet of the hours and hours over days that Orion spends playing in the HOPSA dress.


Disclaimer: It is very important to note, you really shouldn't let your kid play in equipment without the security harnesses it provides.  Don't try this at home, folks!
