Autism Toys: Tips for Choosing a Great Gift
Most kids on the spectrum enjoy sensory toys. Is your child with autism visually oriented? If so think about interesting visual toys. Motion lamps, liquid timers, and tops are often pleasing and make great special needs toys. Does your child seek to touch lots of things? If so think about toys that are tactile. Good tactile toys for children with autism must be durable and interesting to touch. Some popular choices include massaging pillows, fidgets, and fabric items with lots of textures like the sensory pillow or textured squares.
Cause and Effect Toys:
Children who interact very little with other people can benefit from cause and effect toys. These toys teach that our actions can cause something in the environment to change. They also work well for introducing the idea of turn taking and can create opportunities for positive interactions with autistic children and their family.
