Toy guide for children with special needs

Toy guide for children with special needs Tagged with:

Late last week, I stopped by my local Toys“R”Us to pick-up a few gifts. While walking into the store I passed a kiosk displaying the Toys“R”Us guide for differently-abled kids, I instantly picked up a copy and began to flip through it. Upon opening the Guide I found that not only were dozens of toys listed but next to each of the toys there was a picture stating which important developmental areas each specific toy could help to enhance. For example, according to the Guide, the Go Baby Go! 1-2-3 Crawl-Along Snail targets fine motor, visual, auditory, thinking and gross motor skill development.

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.

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.
