Children learn through play and active exploration. A wide variety of toys and games can encourage learning and develop social, language, and motor skills. The following suggestions may be helpful in choosing appropriate toys for the holidays, birthdays and other special times. They are engaging activities, games and books that encourage the development of specific skills. Approximate ages or skill levels have been given to help guide your choices.
Many items can be purchased at toy stores, websites, or through the catalogs listed. Ask your SST therapist for help in deciding which games or toys are the best choices for your child.
