Around this time of year, parents start asking me what gifts they should get for their children. My advice is always that a child with special needs doesn't necessarily need special toys. Just keep in mind your child's developmental stage and don't worry if your child is older than the suggested age on the package. If you are not sure where your child is developmentally, check with your child's therapist for guidance.
This week I will be posting a series of holiday gift guides to assist with selecting toys for children with a variety of abilities across a range of ages. First up, gifts for babies!
