Special Needs Toys
Toys are great fun and each one benefits a child’s learning and understanding of the world in which they live. Toys foster the development of motor skills, creativity, social skills and imagination. For a child with special needs, items like these bring a measure of control over their immediate environment. This is because each one is tactile, engaging and fun.
The benefits for children with special needs:
- allows stimulation of their senses
- provides safe tactile surfaces to encourage play
- develops hand to eye coordination
- provides opportunities for understanding movement and sound
All children enjoy playing with these tactile educational toys, but specifically relevant to children with special needs. This is because they allow children to experience great reward for little effort. For example, as they watch the roly poly drum roll along the floor they are listening to the tickle of the bells inside it. Children delight in watching the flip fingers at work, and use the mini ball abacus for counting and colour sorting.
They are brightly coloured and often tuneful. These toys allow education to be gained in a fun and unobtrusive way because they are easily incorporated into the everyday toys of the classroom or nursery.
There is a wide range of toys within this section for you to choose from. Our sensory range also includes sensory bean bags, sensory lights – even treasure baskets. Why not take a look.
