Autism

In this section, we look at autism spectrum disorder and the different toys that kids who are on the spectrum can use as part of their behavioral therapy. Of key concern are the toys for autistic kids who are nonverbal. These toys are audio and encourage imitating the sounds made by the toys. They also encourage social interaction so that the kid can relate well with others.

Autistic kids are also very sensitive to sounds as well as lights. They will want to use noise cancelling devices such as headphones or even non conspicous earbuds that muffle out the excess noise. These devices can be used in movie theatres, classes, school dinner hall or even in a noisy bus when the kid wants to focus on something but they are unable to do so because of the excessive noise.
