Continuing our focus on physical health this month, we’re revisiting our podcast chat with Dr Helen Lynch who discussed the importance of outdoor play.

They discuss the importance of outdoor play for autistic children and young people, as well as the barriers they may face to accessing it. The idea of inclusive play spaces is explored as Dr Lynch introduces the concept of Universal Design for playgrounds, and examples are given of how to help support outdoor play for autistic individuals.
