Spinning Ball Top - Accessible To Almost All Kinds Of Special Needs
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff




Cause and effect is an important concept. It let's kids understand that they have the power to affect their world. This is an ideal toy with which to learn cause and effect. Accessible even to a baby or to a child with very solid fine motor delay. The strong sight and sound effect means a blind OR deaf child can also enjoy this toy. Encourage children to try pushing with both hands and any other parts of the body that they are developing control over. The top can be glued to a board if necessary to keep it on a tray.
