10 Toys That Speak To Autism

Toy 'R' Us is partnering with Autism Speaks through the month of April for a fundraising campaign. Since 2007, they have together raised over $12 million for Autism Speaks. As a company committed to children to all abilities, Toys 'R' Us has worked with Autism Speaks to come up a list of "10 Toys That Speak To Autism." These toys are everything from toys children with Autism can play with by themselves to toys that can play with alongside their siblings or other children. A detailed listing of each toy can be  found here.
