Kids learn through the act of playing whether they are painting a picture or building a model plane or fort they are being made to work their cognitive, motor, language and social skills. Learning toys are a great way for children to develop their skills and abilities in a multi-sensory and creative manner.
Children with attention deficit disorder often struggle in school because of their short attention spans. Many quickly decide that they are "dumb" or "stupid" when the simple truth is that their condition is causing them to fail in the traditional school setting, which requires children to focus on one activity for an extended period of time.
When searching for a new toy for your child, you may experience a bit of sensory overload when walking through the toy department. There are all kinds of colors screaming at you with huge numbers and letters to accompany them. However, there are more than just colors and numbers getting your attention. There are also lights, sounds, and talking toys.
