It all started with a suggestion from a parent, and County librarian Veronica Estrada ran with it and created a unique program called Sensory Playtime at the La Mesa Library.

Sensory play is so important! It provides a way to experience physical sensations in a safe way.  These are baby steps towards expanding the amount and type of sensory experiences.  As a mom, I've seen these visits become transformative!  Offering them at a library takes down the fiscal barrier that so many families face.  Many years ago the visits were $100 each - plus speech therapy, and every thing else.  It can be a fiscal mountain that many parents cannot overcome, especially if they have lower wage jobs, limited transportation etc.  Congratulations Veronica Estrada - you are truly a life changer!!  Karen
