When the gift-giving season rolls back around, relatives of every description start looking for toys that will make a memorable and lasting impact on a child’s development. It is always true that relatives who don’t see the child on a daily basis are not sure what type of toy might make the best gift any particular year, since children grow and develop between times we visit with them, and their interests can change so rapidly. It is especially true for families who are looking for the best gift for a child with a disability.
We love to see the delighted smiles of a child who has unwrapped the paper and ribbon and can finally catch sight of the gift they have received. Their eyes widen and begin to shine. Their mouth opens in a wide, happy grin and they look up at us with appreciation and excitement.
It’s that time of year when many of us are laboring over the perfect gift to get for someone special. I was curious how to find recommendations for toys for kids with disabilities so I did some looking around (on the internet of course) and found myself directed to http://www.abilitypath.org/, a site that provides support for parents of kids with disabilities.
