Developmental Toys for Special Needs Children Online
If you are a parent of a special needs child, you already know that mainstream retail stores have a limited supply of developmental toys and resources appropriate for children with special needs. In the past, teachers and therapist was the only people that had access to these development toys and resources. Now, parents of special needs children can go online and shop for toys, resources, self-help and educational tools to help with the development of their child right at home.
As a mother of a child with special needs, I can testify that searching for developmental toys and resources can be challenging. But I asked around and searched online to find some websites that will be beneficial not only to the parent of a special needs child but any parent interested in the development of their child.
Here are a few websites worth checking out:
