In our last post we discussed about down syndrome. What is a down syndrome and how it is caused. In our post today we will take this further. Let us look at toys which can help kids with down syndrome.
When you are looking for toys for a kid with down syndrome, you need to keep in mind that your kids growth may not be as per age and hence if you go by product label on age, it might not work well for your child. Also different age group will have different needs as it is the case with all the kids.
Kids with down syndrome can have difficulty with fine motor skills. We have discussed about motor skills in our previous posts. And hence give your kids toys and games which has larger parts. Small part toys like small part blocks may not work well with them.
