Due to the positive responses I received last year, I’m excited to share my second
annual holiday gift guide. This guide allows you to choose educational and therapeutic
games, toys, and activities for your children based on the skill sets they would
benefit from developing.

Many games focus on multiple skill sets and therefore may be listed under more than
one category.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
