Play Tip!

All ball use tips apply to all sizes of balls. To improve balance, try sitting your child crosslegged on the ball, hold their hips firmly, and roll the ball from the centre out in all directions. Watch your child's reactions to see that they correct for the tip no matter what direction the ball is rolled in. This size is usually best for children the size of a typical child of 4 - 8 years.

Sound Puzzle Box Ideal For Children With Down Syndrome and Other Special Needs

This technique lets children choose from a manageable number of possibilities. This toy does not require sight, and the pieces are a good size for most children.
