Project Description


Play, learn and grow with toys selected for kids with developmental and physical challenges.

Skill Builders Adaptive Toys kits include tools and toys to help children aged 3 and up develop essential skills — fine and gross motor, language, hand-eye coordination, focus and sensory processing.

The toys were selected in consultation with local children’s health care professionals and are particularly effective for children who have cognitive, physical, sensory or communication challenges.


Inside the Kits

Kits come in three sizes and are light enough to carry easily.

Inside you’ll find:

  • three to five toys, a fidget (a self-soothing tool) and a book or CD,
  • information and ideas on how to use the toys, and
  • resources for children with developmental issues.

One kit can be checked out at a time per valid, adult GVPL library card. The loan period is 21 days if there are no holds or 14 days if there are holds. The kits can be picked up and returned at the information desk of any branch.
