My Diffability Australia - Special Needs Toys and Resources
To help you shop more easily, our products are grouped together according to the skills they best help develop.
We also offer suggestions for how you can get the most out of the products, along with the areas they relate to:
Sensory – Resources to help people who feel over-responsive or under-responsive to incoming sensory information . For those who sometimes feel things are too bright, too loud, too crunchy, too soft, always on the move, difficulty to stay alert and attentive.
Gross Motor Skills – Resources that help practice and develop larger movements that involve the entire body. Actions like jumping, crawling, catching a ball and running are gross motor skills.
Fine Motor Skills – Resources to develop smaller motor skills such as pinching, in-hand manipulation, pencil grip, zipping, threading, tying shoe laces and doing up buttons.
Communication – resources that help people learn to express themselves and to understand you and the world around them.
Social Skills – resources that help people learn how to get along, interact and spend time with other people
Play – play is a child’s ‘work’! All children need to play in order to learn about their world. These resources provide interesting and engaging opportunities for children to play
