The holidays are upon us and it’s time to get your shopping lists ready. BlueSprig Pediatrics, a national provider of ABA therapy for children with autism, knows that for gift-givers of cherished children with autism, finding the perfect little treasure may be challenging.

To help, they created a very special holiday gift guide, one specifically for children with autism and included some considerations as well!

Before hunting for the perfect item, a few things to consider are:

  • Does the toy fit the child’s developmental age or stage?
  • Does it reflect the child’s interests?
  • Will they enjoy it?

If you are buying for a child other than your own, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask their parent what is on their child’s wish list this year! Just like all children, a child with autism’s interests and tastes constantly change and evolve.

Now onto the fun part! Here is BlueSprig’s Gift Guide for Children with Autism list 2022!
