World Autism Awareness Day
Today is World Autism Awareness Day and we wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate our individuality. Here at Good Toy Guide we believe that society would be much better and happier if we celebrated what children can do rather than trying to ‘fix’ them when they don’t conform to our definition of ‘normal’.
Play offers a range of opportunities for children with autism to develop skills that will help them fulfil their potential and thrive. Toys, games, apps and activities that encourage skills that a child already enjoys are great and they can be interspersed with those that help children learn to compensate for and manage the things they find challenging.
Let’s mark World Autism Awareness Day in the right way – accept, encourage and celebrate.Tags: Autism, Fundamentally Children, Special needs
