Lekotek Releases Toy Guide for Children of All Abilities

 
Lekotek Releases Its First 
AblePlay™ Toy Guide for Children of All Abilities   
 
 
Chicago, Ill. (Dec. 8, 2016) — Experts in helping children with disabilities learn key life skills through therapeutic play, Lekotek has just released its first AblePlay™ Toy Guide. The guide is a unique resource that evaluates a variety of toys and explains how each can help develop important skills that all children—but particularly those with disabilities—need in order to grow and learn. 
 
Just in time for holiday shopping, the guide, which includes information on more than 50 toys, is free and currently available online at www.Lekotek.org. Every toy in the guide is accessible and appropriate for all children. While the guide is being launched during the holiday season, it is designed as a reference that can be used throughout the year.
 
“This is the definitive guide for parents, grandparents, professionals, or anyone seeking to purchase toys for children of all abilities,” said Kathy Lavin, Executive Director, Lekotek. “The guide features AblePlay™ approved products as well as AblePlay™ Play Ideas so that the benefits of play are maximized. As a parent of a child with special needs, I believe that this guide supports any family’s desire to play together with much joy and laughter.”
 
A key to Lekotek’s success is its emphasis on bringing the whole family together to enjoy the many benefits of play. This new guide will help make that all-important family time even more fun by showcasing toys that will appeal to all ages and all abilities.
 
Lekotek is a division of Anixter Center. For more information about Lekotek or to access the AblePlay™ Toy Guide, go to www.Lekotek.org
