Help Provide Outdoor Play Space

Winston knolls sensory park & playground

The Winston Knolls Foundation is embarking on an initiative for The Winston Knolls School to build a playground specifically designed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This will provide the students outdoor play space offering life skill experiences and therapeutic programming.

Children with Autism have a difficult time socializing and rarely interact successfully with other children in free play situations without a great deal of work. The playground is the perfect place to practice skills: social skills, balancing, how the body relates to the space around it, and how it reacts to height and speed. Many children with Autism are in therapy programs to learn to deal with these situations. The playground offers them a fun place to practice what they learn. The playground can be a space to better understand one’s own ability to regulate input and practice socialization.

We're excited to announce this initiative and invite you to make a gift or forward this message to your friends and family. Please click the button below to help build this special place for our students!
