I'm doing a give away on my blog with EASe computer games which have two computer games that have embedded coded music to help with auditory sensory processing. This is helpful for anyone with sensory processing disorder.

I just wanted to share this video called Autism Reality. It's one of the better ones I have seen in a long time.

Beth that is great for us to add--since Play Doh is usually a great material for kids with special needs. I just got another set of dough from another company--the smell was so strong we couldn't keep in the office once we opened it!

FYI - noticed some moms mentioned PlayDoh - it is great - might want to keep in mind that many special needs kids have special diets - if the child has any gluten allergy, intolerance, or sensitivity then PlayDoh is out.

Stephanie - My 2yo LOVES Mr. Potato Head, Melissa & Doug puzzles and PlayDoh. We have not adapted anything, but uses it for PT or OT purposes. I do know one mom who has switch adapted a Brobee toy for her son with CP.

I would love to hear from mom's that have tips on toys that they have adapted or just using with their kids. I'll be on the Today Show Monday Morning with the hottest toys of the season...be interested to hear if any of them are on your list!

The pulse of our home (with two completely different kids. One on the spectrum, one isn't.) My boys are sensitive. When you're an 8th grader with special needs you tend to be a target "out there". So this is how we live "in here" in our home, to give them strength and courage and a without-a-doubt sense of who they are: http://www.amymusings.com/2009/11/20/i-write-love-letters-and-save-...

We just posted our SNAP Awards for 2009. These are our Special Needs Adaptable Product Awards. When we started the toyportfolio.com (nearly 20 years ago) my mother and I were so upset that toys marketed to families with special needs kids were really ridiculously overpriced. So we started then to create a list of toys that either needed no adaptation or could be easily adapted. There is no reason why kids with special needs can't play with the same toys that their siblings and neighbors play with. The info is on our independent consumer site, www.toyportfolio.com.
