Join us to kick off a FUN and SAFE summer! We've invited law enforcement, firefighters, EMS and community programs to hangout with kids, show off their tools and vehicles, and begin to partner with parents on safety.
Safe Summer is a collaborative effort between PlayBig, law enforcement and other public safety organizations, and families of kids with special needs.
The PlayBig team is forever seeking to broaden our understanding of the autism spectrum and effective treatments. We are interested in exploring how other parts of the world view and treat this complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Our search lead us to Dr. Rajalakshmi in Chennai, India. You might remember an article we posted about the dangers of ABA written by Dr. Rajalakshmi. We understand the controversy around this idea, however didn’t want to shy away from its important message to avoid feelings of discomfort. Instead, we wanted to learn more and straight from the source. Although very different from the Western approach, families touched by autism have rightfully demanded to know all their treatment options. The following is an interview with Dr. Rajalakshmi herself.
