Hope the event went really well!  The weather was great yesterday.  Participants received a coupon for the Pen Centre store, and we're hoping that when you bring in your coupons, you will also bring us your suggestions on what toys we should recommend for autistic children.  We would like to provide some suggestions on this site, and we appreciate any way that you can educate us.  Our Pen staff said that we do really well with spiky and otherwise textured novelty balls for this need.

Toys for Autistic Children

We invite you to start a discussion on this topic.  We regularly get requests for toys that are appropriate for autistic children.  We try to do our best to find something that matches your descriptions of need, but we would definitely like to learn from parents of autistic children.   Please let us know what toys you have found to be appropriate to your child's needs and why.  Or what type of toy you would like to find but have had trouble finding.  We will add our posts about the toys that our staff has recommended.  We look forward to hearing from you!
