A treasure box with quality toys and customized activities for your child based upon their age and developmental stage for kids age newborn to six.
While I have hinted a bit over the months about the need for more outreach on motor delays in the United States, I have a huge reason why I am so passionate. My oldest daughter (who was a preemie and in the NICU) was diagnosed with a motor delay in the middle of first grade. She was able to compensate her intelligence until motor skills at school became more advanced. While she is high on the spectrum, her cleverness masked her delay and she was quite aware she was starting to be different from the other kids in her class. They could easily go across the monkey bars and excel in gym and she felt – bad. While I started to notice the difference her teachers and doctor assured me she would grow into her body. That is, until it began to affect her self-worth and school avoidance. Long story short, she has been excelling with the help of Occupational Therapy and she’s my silly, happy child again. I have learned that TOYS (yes, TOYS) designed to help fine and gross motor skills that OT use are the best tools for us to use in our home to support her OT and I am VERY excited to tell you about the subscription box, HOOT for Kids, that does just that.
Choose from HOOT for Kids great selection of add-ons to include in your box shipment. Great for special occasions such as birthdays.
Toys foster growth and can be used in many creative ways, including as a tool to enhance key developmental areas: fine motor, gross motor and sensory processing skills. In addition, the right toys and activities can also help parents be instrumental in facilitating developmental milestones. Toys can be utilized to address a child’s physical limitations, sensory integration issues, speech and language concerns and other developmental delays including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
