“I love this! These kinds of opportunities do so much to support brain development, and should be available to all kids in our schools and communities. My 12-year-old son is very interested in architecture and building things, and design activities have provided him many beneficial learning experiences. In my clinic we specialize in working with children who have Autism, ADHD, and related disorders; and I find that the kinds of activities you discuss are highly beneficial for them. They need to develop the kinds of thinking, problem solving, and collaborative skills you discussed. Architecture classes and related design activities are perfect vehicles for that growth and learning to occur. ”
