Special needs kids
Our knowledge about toys for special needs children is based on our own very personal experience. We have a son who was diagnosed with Asberger’s Syndrome at the age of four and we found ourselves very frustrated that it was so difficult to find toys suited for kids “trapped in the middle” like our son with his moderate disability.
Parent with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ADS) will tell you how focused their kids can become around a specific theme. In our case our son became infatuated with trucks and sometimes sent us searching for very specific models. We have other customers whose special needs children are crazy about all things related to astronomy, or it may be dinosaurs or some other theme.
This focused attention can be broadened to related products if introduced appropriately, but sometimes it can be difficult to source the products of specific interest for these children. That’s where we can help!
