Toys for Children with Special Needs


Imagine a parent or family member who is looking for the perfect toy for a child with a disability. Their toy-shopping experience becomes even more daunting as they are faced with another challenge to overcome-not only do they have to choose the right toys that will bring joy to their child, they also have to find toys that will accommodate their special needs.


The Holiday Season is almost upon us and soon toy stores will be inundated with parents and family members who are on a mission to find the perfect toy for their children or grandchildren.

Choosing the perfect toy can be a daunting experience. Parents and family members venturing up and down the crowded aisles of toy stores can easily become overwhelmed by the vast amount of choices with which they are presented.

Trying to decide whether or not a specific toy is age appropriate or has the right amount of bells and whistles is enough to send some parents running out of the store.

Now imagine a parent or family member who is looking for the perfect toy for a child with a disability.

Their toy-shopping experience becomes even more daunting as they are faced with another challenge to overcome-not only do they have to choose the right toys that will bring joy to their child, they also have to find toys that will accommodate their special needs.

There are thousands of choices but finding just the right toy to match the varying abilities of each child with special needs can be a challenge.

Enter Ableplay.org, a toy rating system and Website that provides comprehensive information on toys for children with disabilities so parents, special educators, therapist and others can make the best choices for the children in their lives with disabilities.

Developed by the National Lekotek Center, the leading nonprofit authority on play for children with disabilities, AblePlay will provide parents, and the professionals who work with them, access to the most useful, product-specific information about the top play and learning products and toys for children with disabilities.
