AblePlay is a resource sponsored by the National Lekotek Center.

Our easy to understand rating system focuses on the developmental areas of physical, sensory, communicative, cognitive, and social/emotional abilities of a child. AblePlay evaluations provide research, ratings and reviews on each of these key areas of development.

How It Works

Parents often look at current toys and wonder, "Is this toy appropriate for my child?" Getting "inside the box," and understanding the features and benefits as they align with the abilities of a particular child can be huge challenges. Even professionals serving children with special needs often lack the time and ability to search for the best products and toys. AblePlay does the research through comprehensive product evaluations relating this information to children's abilities and skill development.
