The adapted toys that we provide to agencies are used in therapy sessions as a fun way to encourage a child to make a particular movement, or to teach cause-and-effect relationships. While we are pleased with the feedback we’ve received from therapists at the agencies we service, we know that there is a limited amount of time that a child spends in therapy. The benefits from the activities that a child does during therapy would be increased if that child could practice the activity at home too. While there are a few types of adapted toys that are commercially-available, they tend to be very expensive, and many families cannot afford to purchase them. One way that RePlay for Kids can help, is to work with agencies to identify low income families whose child could benefit from playing with an adapted toy at home, and give them one of the toys that was adapted at our workshops. In 2011, we initiated the "RePlay @Home" program, in which we set aside some of our adapted toys for low-income families.
