Each year we are asked to share some of our therapists’ favorite toys for holiday gifts. We are so excited to be teaming up with our friends at Gingerbread House Toys in Bloomington to bring you our annual shopping guide! These toys were hand-selected by our therapists to help children of all ages with their development. These are also all part of our therapists’ wish list, so if you are purchasing for a child you know, consider supporting our pediatric therapy program with some of these great resources as well!
Toys and games that help children express their emotions, practice mindfulness, and encourage turn-taking and critical thinking skills are great for every age!

Sensory products/solutions are vital to creating a calm space for campers, or children in general. Many of these are portable and easy to pack in a backpack or purse to help those who are overstimulated wherever they are. They are also a great tool to help children and campers who are seeking stimulation and need an outlet to do it in an appropriate way for the setting.
The Community Foundation presented The Autism Collective with a check for $15,000 in support of our Care Coordination services. This program has been made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
