When I first created the PlayBag, as I have said before, I did so mainly with my son in mind. However, I soon started getting enquiries about PlayBags for children on the autistic spectrum. This was followed shortly after by an invite to exhibit at the first Anna Kennedy Autism Expo! It got me thinking that perhaps the PlayBag would be a valuable resource for children with autism. After all, they are already super tactile and made from quality fabrics that you just can’t help but touch. They encourage imaginative play, and therefore speech and language development, and most of all, they offer a bit of security for children when they are away from their familiar environment. They also encourage independence as children can add their own toys and transport them and set up their own playstation when and wherever they need it.
