Hasbro Helping Special Needs Kids Grow Through Play

November 24, 2014

Hasbro is trying to make an impact in how children with disabilities play with their toys. Thanks to a partnership with The Autism Project, a group of parents and professionals that help people with autism, Hasbro has launched an all free service called "ToyBox Tools," a suite of counters, playmats, and written material that corresponds with instructional videos, to help children with developmental disabilities learn how to play with their toys. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about 15 percent of children in the United States have a developmental disability. You can learn more about the project via Hasbro's website here

Toys"R"Us, long time partner of Autism Speaks, has published two toy guides for parents in, Toys"R"Us Guide Toy for Differently-Abled Kids and Ten Toys That Speak To Autism which you can learn more about here
