30 Days of Giving: Special Gifts for Special Kids

As we enter into the Gift Giving Season, generous friends and family members often ask for gift ideas for our special needs kiddos. While our kiddos are a specific chronological age, their developmental age may be very different, making it difficult for extended family to purchase appropriate gifts. For those outside of our households, this makes gift giving difficult and frustrating.

To help solve this issue, Military Special Needs Network has run a toy review for everyday in the month of November on our Facebook page. Our toys have ranged from those for very developmentally young kiddos to board games for older kiddos. And, though, they may look like mere playthings, you can see from the reviews that these “simple toys” work on several developmental milestones and therapy goals. For your convenience, we have gathered them all here.

We hope these spark gift giving ideas for everyone. Please feel free to add your own suggestions or reviews in our comments section.
