I know most people when they think of what to get someone for Christmas, Hanukkah or any holiday don't think..what should I get them they have a disability....but maybe you should. Here is why. It's not because you are singling them out because of their's because you have taken the time to really get to know them and their needs.

One of the reasons a lot of families love Disney is their attention to what needs people have and how to fulfill that need. Like wheelchair accessible queues and other things, you need as part of a wheelchair lifestyle. Look at your family and friend's needs and gift accordingly!

Take my niece's and nephew for example. They like toys that allow them to have sensory input. So things that have different textures and feel. But not all kids are like that. Some kids with autism you have to be very careful about what sensory inputs you give them because they may like soft and smooth and if you give them something grainy or gritty they may have a tantrum or meltdown.

I love Fun And Function because they have toys and items that fit a kid's unique personality and needs. They have adaptive stuff for kids of all ages, sensory toys and clothing, wiggle chairs, weighted blankets, and more! You can search by product type, age, goals, or diagnosis. You can get the items that really help kids succeed.
