Mission Statement

ToyLend makes play available to children with disabilities. The program focuses on increasing the child's functional skills and devlopment through play. We teach families the importance of play and show them how to play with their child/sibling with special needs. Play is crucial to a child's development and acquirement of needed skills.

Description

ToyLend is a Lekotek Center and loans over 2000 adaptive and educational toys to families. We also utilize adaptive computers and software. ToyLend offers inclusive playgroups one time per month and individual family play sessions. This is a great opportunity for children to feel comfortable playing in a group and to learn social skills. We have offered all types of playgroups, such as baby groups, computer camps, swim groups and music.
