The holidays are around the corner and stores are sending out flyers showcasing the hottest toys. It is an overwhelming time for any parent. For the parents of kids with disabilities this time of year can be even more challenging. Finding toys and activities for kids with physical and cognitive disabilities often requires shopping online for adapted items. These options are limited and often costly. It is also difficult to find age-appropriate adapted toys.

This webinar will highlight a variety of adapted toys for a wide range of ages and abilities. Participants will learn about resources for accessing and/or purchasing adapted toys, resources for adapting toys on your own, and ideas on how to make off the shelf toys user friendly.
