It’s getting closer to that time! And there are a million things to do still—buying that perfect gift for your child with special needs is one of them.
Sensory toys provide the particular element that many children with special needs crave. Whether it is visual or tangible, these toys have the power to capture your kid’s attention, making the right sensory toy a great reward in itself. Some sensory toys are also excellent fidget toys and can improve concentration and focus in children with ADHD and others who need to keep their hands busy. Each child with disabilities is unique, but favorites include spinning toys, light-up toys and stretchy or squishy toys.
So, what is the best toy out there? Here are three that will be a hit:
Your child has probably had lots of fun in the swings in the park and has longed for one all the time. It gives them the sheer joy and the pleasure of flying. Now you can have it at home! This has a great impact on the development of the vestibular activities. Along with that, the visual and awareness skills of your child with special needs are also improved. It has a high and deep seat, and a sturdy seat belt for protection. The removable T-bar allows easy and free movement. As they get to feel that they’re safe and protected while using this, a sense of confidence builds.
There are pictures of objects that are extremely catchy. There are also sound bars that produce noises and a clear pronunciation of the words so kids can learn words just by hearing them. And there are no additional sounds or music, so children do not get distracted, which also helps in maintaining their concentration. Children need to point out objects with their fingers, and this makes their fingers agile and movements easy. If your child is not able to isolate his fingers, you should always support him to use all his fingers, or even his whole hand while playing with this toy.
