Can you buy a child with Autism the same toy as you would anyone else?

Autism Toys

Make Sure the Toy is Appropriate.
Appropriateness does not just mean age appropriate according to the manufacturer's label. It also means appropriate for the developmental age of the child. If the child is ten years old and functioning like a six year old, choose a toy that fits his/her functional ability. Wrong choices cause frustration.
My Rule: Never frustrate the child with Autism.
