       As a grandparent it can be a struggle to find presents for a granddaughter or grandson who has autism. Sometimes traditional gifts can backfire for the child with autism.

      Stages Learning has spent the last 36 years developing fun and engaging activities for children with autism that also help them learn. Founded by a UCLA trained ABA Therapist, Stages Learning products reflect the ongoing research on what activities and experiences will be most enjoyable for this special population. Children with autism are highly visual learners and the following gifts can help them play and learn at the same time. This list of five best-selling items is guaranteed to get an excited response from your grandchild.
