Autistic children need varying degrees of additional support in development areas including, but not limited to, communication, fine motor skills and empathy.

Previously grouped under the term Autism Spectrum Disorder, the main identifiable traits of autism are persistent deficits in social communication/interaction, and restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, which includes sensory issues.

Focusing on learning through play, this selection of toys is for autistic kids of various ages and stages, depending on your child’s needs.

As always, children should be supervised when playing with toys.
