The multidisciplinary pediatric therapy team at Child and Family Development is rounding up some FUNctional gift ideas for the 2016 holiday season!

Here are some suggestions from our speech therapists:

  • Play Dough Factory Retro Set: An open ended toy with tons of opportunities for generating language. 
  • Tough & Feel Books: Great for engaging little ones in books. You can name objects and talk about the pictures as you look at the pages. 
  • Bubbles: Fun for everyone! Bubbles can be used to work on requesting and early sounds.  Also help with oral motor skills.
  • Zingo by Think Fun: A twist on Bingo with lots of objects to name.  Also works on matching memory and concentration skills.
  • Parum Pum Pum Drum: Musical instruments are great for sparking interest and attention.  Encourage your child to participate in songs with movement, gestures or words. 
  • Headbandz by Spin Master: A fun game for asking questions, describing objects and categorizing.
