Kids who are vision or hearing impaired find it more challenging to play the same games as other children play. And, they can have a harder time with certain toys. But there are still plenty of toys and games you can provide for them that they can learn and have fun with.
Tobbles are little spheres that kids can balance and stack however they want. For the vision impaired, the bright colors are fun. The spheres are weighted, have 2 different textures and come in packs of 6. They are great for teaching different colors and as well as size sequencing. They also teach kids patience while they improve motor skills.
LEGO Duplo helps to teach children colors and shapes with blocks and scenes. You can buy several unique sets including my first construction site and my first fire station. The child can play by himself or with others, involved in imaginative play without a lot of talking. Introduce children to farming and homesteading with the my first garden set or the farm animals lego set.
For the hearing impaired, this is a great set of sign language letters to help children master sign language. The WonderFoam Magnetic Sign Language Letters have blue consonants and red vowels. This game is for ages 3 and up.
This fun set allows kids to create faces with noses, mustaches, hats, glasses and more. There are different characteristics included in each tin you purchase.
This toy teaches through 2 different modes for visually impaired kids. It teaches your child colors through sound. When your child puts the colorful fish into the fishbowl, the bowl announces the color.
Kids learn counting skills through this speak aloud cookie jar toy that has 2 modes that teaches them about numbers. It also helps them sharpen their problem solving skills.
The LeapFrog Letter Factory Phonics toy teaches children phonics and they learn the letters based on feeling the shape of the letter. Each of the letters sings its name as it’s put into the letter factory.
