Cause and Effect Toys
Parents, teachers and therapists love our high quality cause and effect toys. They work well as rewards for positive behavior. They are also stimulating for autistic kids because they signal an ability to exert influence (the child does something to get a reaction). For children with autism, cause and effect toys retain their utility much longer than they might for typically developing kids because they offer the opportunity for hand eye coordination, simple repetitive motor sequences, promote communication between parent and child, and offer sensory exploration. These toys work well in ABA therapy, speech therapy and early intervention settings. They also make great gifts for kids who have limited social contact. Parents report they open the door for social interaction. By taking turns with the toy, family members are able to enter into an enjoyable shared experience.
