Looking back on ones own childhood, it is likely that our fondest memories are of playtime. Whether playing hopscotch, doing a puzzle, or playing house, we all have joyous memories from our childhood and the days of play. For young children, however, playtime is more than just making fond memories: playtime is time to learn, time to hone skills, and time to develop. For a developmentally disabled child, the need for appropriate toys is even greater. A child with cerebral palsy may have serious issues with his or her sensory development, cognitive development, or motor skills. Even if your child’s cognitive ability is in no way diminished, it may be the case that he or she doesn’t have adequate control in his or her hands to perform tasks that require fine motor skills. Toys are essential in any child’s life, but a child with cerebral palsy may have specific limitations that can be addressed simply by picking the right toy. The following is a list of sites dedicated to finding the right toy for your disabled child.
