Step Away from the Screen... - A Sensory Life
Angie Voss, OTR, looks at the damaging capabilities of screen time from a sensory point of view.
"Our brains are basically the same brains that existed on Little House on the Prairie...where without question, all children had a very enriched sensory diet every single day. Tons and tons of tactile, proprioceptive, and vestibular input. Children played like children should play! This is how the brain develops and lays down a foundation for learning and being prepared for the world. The problem is...our brains haven't changed, but we have."
She doesn't mince any words: "Please limit screen time!"
The research suggests that this is good advice. Read more about what she has to say about it here.
