Christmas Gifts for Kids with ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Magnetic Responsibility Chart is a great way to keep your kids on task with chores and daily responsibilities like brushing their teeth. It cuts down on the frustration for both of you.
Learning Games for Kids with ADHD
Melissa & Doug Shut-the-Box is a great game to practice math skills. Many kids with ADHD have problems with Math. You roll the die and then try to turn down numbers to equal the dice total making you have to think about different combos to make up numbers. It's a really fun, fast (so they don't have to pay attention long) and retro game.
Games for Children with ADHD and SPD
Memory Games are great to increase their brain power for remembering things you tell them. I like Simon because it also increases with speed and if your child has a processing disorder this can help with that as well. Here is the pocket edition to carry everywhere or you can purchase it in other sizes as well.
Wok and Roll is a great game for small motor skills you have to chase these little pieces of food around a wok that is jiggling around and you have to use chopsticks. It's tons of fun!
