Three Easter Holiday Ideas for Kids with CP

Easter Holiday Ideas

Believe it or not, spring holidays are already right around the corner. In the season of fake grass, high-sugar treats and bunny rabbits, it’s natural to want to help your child however you can get into the holiday spirit! With dietary limitations and certain activities perhaps being too difficult or challenging due to symptoms related to your child’s CP, it may feel impossible to actively participate in some of the more time-honored traditions like decorating eggs or hunting for treats.

Round-Up: Planning a Winter Vacation

If you live in an area that gets cold when the calendar changes, you likely know plenty of people who are planning a winter getaway this year. As a parent of a child with special needs, though, you may think that there are not many options for planning your own escape from winter’s reach. We’re happy to report this is not necessarily the case and that there may be some excellent options for vacation available to your family!

Last-Minute Holiday Checklist for Special Needs Parents

The holidays can be a hectic time, with travel, shopping, planning, work and more competing for your time. Parents of children with special needs often already feel torn between two worlds even outside of the holiday season, making this time of year even more stressful than otherwise. In the interest of helping jog the memory of our community about things to keep in mind, we have compiled a short overview to serve as a last-minute holiday checklist, hoping it will help clear the clutter and make your holiday go more smoothly.

Hasbro’s ToyBox Tools for Children with Special Needs

Hasbro is a high-profile organization that recognizes a need for inclusion and access, creating ToyBox Tools as a medium to build awareness and accessibility in the realm of fun for children.
