Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

If you live in or are traveling to the Chicago area anytime soon, be sure to stop by the new Spectrum Toy Store! The Spectrum Toy Store is the only toy store in Illinois specifically designed for children with developmental disabilities; it is also one of very few in the country!

The Spectrum Toy Store's catalogue features a variety of sensory items, toys, and children's books, as well as several useful resources for caregivers and educators. All of their toys focus on the mental, physical, and social development of each child. According to the company's website, "What makes Spectrum Toy Store unique is that although we specialize in toys for children with disabilities, we also carry toys for all children of all types and ages."

Not in the Chicago area? No problem! The store's entire catalogue can be found online! To browse the catalogue and to learn more, visit SpectrumToyStore.Com.
