An 11 years old ADHD boy (CY) commented “I remembered Thursday is free play. I liked today the best!”
The children were so happy that they were encouraged to bring any of the play materials and invite friends to play along for an hour.

I noticed our 9 years old Autistic girl (CQ) responded very well with this free play session. She took out a box of threading boards and started threading. Later, she went over and played with another friends on the ‘Thumbling Monkeys’. When she was asked to keep her previous threading board, she did it immediately and then returned to her monkey’s game. Wow, it’s amazing to witness that CQ has acquired her sense of responsibility.
