Fostering independence in toddlers is a critical step to raising secure and independent children. While trying to be independent comes easy for most kids entering the toddler years, a lack of tools and parental encouragement can leave kids lagging behind as they enter kindergarten. Encouraging independence in toddlers means you provide regular praise when your child attempts age-appropriate tasks, particularly those he's reluctant to try.
Whether your child is growing up with special needs or without, we recommend engaging in daily independent toddler activities to help him grow, learn and understand. You don't have to be a teacher or therapist to begin raising an independent special needs child. Our selection of autism learning toys and games includes products that help them feed themselves, games that help them get the hang of concepts such as time and more.
