Check out these 5 fun games for children with cerebral palsy
It’s Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month and with parents juggling working from home with keeping kids occupied and entertained, we thought we would bring you some great games that will keep your child with cerebral palsy occupied and engaged.
You can send your child on some delightful sensory adventures with these high-quality silicone spinners that encourage fine motor skills, sensory exploration, and cause-effect learning. They spin around with just a flick and keep on spinning. This is a set of three spinners in colourful colours of pink, blue and green. Each one features a suction cup on one side and swirl-textured dome on the other.

Spiky Tactile Cushion
This is a cushion that’s spiky on one side and bumpy on the other, so kids can choose which tactile input they prefer. This helps children and teenagers who need a heightened sensory experience to stay seated for longer periods of time. The sensory input helps improve focus. The cushion is dark blue in colour and circular in shape

This helps strengthen hand-eye coordination and offers a reward every time a child plays with the toy. This is also great for children with cerebral palsy and autism who are upset by loud sounds. The colours are yellow, green, purple and magenta and have soft, rounded corners making it easy for a child to hold them.
