The Toy Guide features the best-rated toys for those on the spectrum.LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Autism Live is the #1 rated Autism Podcast on the internet. For the past decade, Autism Live has featured an annual Festival of Toys, reviewing and recommending top toys and the ways they can help ignite the hearts and minds of those on the autism spectrum. The 2021 Autism Live Toy and Gift Guide details all of the winners in six categories: Baby/Toddler, Preschool, School-aged, Tween/Teen, Adult, and Caregiver.
In each of these 6 categories, there are 16 winners which are: Best Educational Toy, Best Social Skill Builder, Best Language Builder, Best Card/Board Game, Best Motor Play Toy, Therapist Recommendation Award, Parent Recommendation Award, Best Sensory Toy Award, Best Book Award, Best Puzzle Award, Boredom Buster Toy Award, Best Oldie but Goody Award, Best STEM Toy, Best Arts & Crafts Award, Best Empowering Employment Award, and the Autism Live Top Toy Award.
“Each toy is thoughtfully chosen by a small team led by toy enthusiasts, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and myself,” says Autism Live host Shannon Penrod. “Toys are powerful tools to ignite the imagination of all children. When my son was diagnosed with Autism it was important to me to find toys that would make him happy and help him to grow. I would get so excited when I found a toy that he connected with and when the toy also helped him to LEARN…I would be over the moon as a parent! Parents started asking us for recommendations and so we started featuring great toys which naturally progressed into doing the annual toy guide.”
Also helping to choose the toys for the toy guide is world-renowned autism expert, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh. Additional input is received from parents and behavior therapists from all over the world as part of Autism Live’s interactive programming.
