Shopping for Autistic Children

As parents of two children with Autism, we know how challenging it can be to find gifts that will interest our children as well as being educational. Plus, having a limited time for shopping since our Respite time is once a week, it can be really difficult to find the time to shop. Also,for single parents, as you know, your time is very limited so shopping on the internet is a real bonus.

Fortunately, we have discovered a more practical way to shop and it is to do it online. So, we have decided to provide you a list of useful links that will help you shop for your autistic children.

This list also includes some suggestions that were provided by our readers. Please, if you have any other suggestions, we would love it if you would contact us and share them with us.

A brief description is also written beside each link to help you out. So we invite you to browse each one of these links and enjoy!
