School’s out! … or is it?

The Games Therapists and Special Needs Parents Love to Hate:

There are a variety of games that fall into this category… some hold fond memories for us from our childhood, but unfortunately modern quality and changes have diminished so much to the point where we have lost all love for the game; some are great for children, but as adults the repetitiveness drives us crazy; […]
