Check out our Special Needs Adaptable Product (SNAP) Award List.
Since we started the Toy Portfolio, finding toys that could be used or easily adapted for use for kids with special needs has been important to both of us. When we started our company in the late 80s there were catalogs that were marking up products so much because they were for “special needs” kids. Many of these products could be found in regular toy supermarkets–so the added expense really struck us as taking advantage of a community looking for information and solid products to bring home. With that as our starting place, we were also committed to finding products that could be used that were the same as the toys enjoyed by siblings, friends and neighbors. A message of inclusion should also be possible in toyland. You’ll find an adaptation suggestion or activity with each product.
