RESEARCH SHOWS THAT PLAYTIME CAN OFFER A HOST OF BENEFITS TO CHILDREN, RANGING FROM IMPROVED SOCIAL AND CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS TO BETTER BALANCE AND DEXTERITY. IT COULD EVEN HELP BOND A PARENT AND CHILD.

THOSE BENEFITS COULD BE ESPECIALLY HELPFUL TO CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, BUT PARENTS AND OTHERS CAN SOMETIMES HAVE TROUBLE CHOOSING PLAY PRODUCTS THAT MATCH A CHILDʼS DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE OR ABILITY.

NOW, A UNIQUE WEB SITE COULD HELP. CALLED ABLEPLAY.ORG, IT OFFERS PLAY PRODUCTS FOR CHILDREN WITH AND WITHOUT SPECIAL NEEDS, AND ITʼS ORGANIZED BY AN EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND RATING SYSTEM FOCUSED ON THE COGNITIVE, SENSORY, COMMUNICATIVE AND PHYSICAL ABILITIES OF THE CHILD.

PARENTS CAN ALSO USE THE SITE TO HELP SUPPORT THE NATIONAL LEKOTEK CENTER, A DIVISION OF ANIXTER CENTER. FOR ALMOST THIRTY YEARS, LEKOTEK HAS WORKED TO MAKE THE BENEFITS OF PLAY AVAILABLE TO CHILDREN WITH ALL TYPES OF DISABILITIES.
