Caption: A sensory board at Independence Park asks children to use their sense of touch to learn Braille. The special equipment is intended for autistic children to need to stimulate their senses. All of the equipment at Independence Park is built for children with special needs, but is also fun for kids regardless of their abilities, said Edie Caito. Caito helped found Independence Park in 2000, and has seen to its maintenance since then. For her work, she has been nominated as 10 inspiring women in the U.S. by Glamour Magazine.
