This is the last day of the Sensory Movement Challenge. Tomorrow's Facebook Live will wrap up what's happened this week and allow guests to ask questions. Remember there is always a way to stay connected and social no matter where you are physically. Please be safe and careful. Use your intuition and sense to make healthy choices.
