  • I'm trying to remember the companies that my daughter's therapists had mentioned that they buy their toys from. I can't remember though and I tried to do a search for you too but didn't find them.

    A good place to ask would be any of the Early Intervention schools or a ABA therapist. They are usually more than happy to help.

  • I work for a not-for-profit that helps Physical Education teachers with professional development. Each year we have a conference with many vendors from all over the country; one of the companies has a Adapted PE section with different games/toys to promote sensory processing and integration. The company is Flaghouse ~ www.flaghouse.com then click on eiter Special Populations or Sensory Solutions for ideas!

    Best of luck and if you want any more information let me know!
