We're an AblePlay Great Find!
We are delighted to announce that we are the recipients of the AblePlay Great Finds seal, for being a product for children of all abilities including those with autism, sensory challenges, and much more!
According to their website, the AblePlay Lifetime Rating is designed to give caregivers and professionals a snapshot of a toy or play products appropriateness for children of all abilities. The AblePlay Product Evaluation is a review process which provides unparalleled information about a product and its ability to help children with skill development. Evaluations are conducted by professionals who have backgrounds in special education, early childhood education, or related therapeutic disciplines and have been previously certified by the National Lekotek Center. A major part of the evaluation process involves using the toys or play products with children of all abilities that participate in the Lekotek family play sessions.
Over the course of 6 weeks, Snug Vests were used in their centers with kids of various ages, and the information, data and feedback gathered were very positive.
We received check marks in all 5 developmental categories. This means that Snug Vest was shown to help with physical, sensory, communication, cognitive and social/emotional development. The evaluators specifically identified the following developmental processes as being aided by Snug Vest:
- Focus & Attention
- Cause & Effect
- Social Interaction
- Spatial Orientation
- Sensory Stimulation
- Tactile Stimulation
We are particularly happy to be recognized for promoting inclusion with the stylish look, and social interaction. We are honored to have received this seal, and hope that Snug Vest continues to help children of all abilities to develop!
