For those unfamiliar with Discovery Toys, this is a company that provides quality toys for children from newborns all the way up to school age. The company was founded by a group of educators and parents who firmly believed in the power of education through play. The toys they create are meant to encourage imagination, and inspire learning.
A unique aspect of Discovery Toys is their “Autism Toy Guide,” a list of hundreds of toys that are specifically designed to promote learning for children with autism. They have a chart that breaks down the toys by their function, with categories such as “toys that promote sustained engagement,” “toys that encourage pretend play,” and “toys that build skills for cooperative play.” This is a great resource for therapists, teachers and parents alike.
