Hello all! I am posting this thread because I have a dilemma in choosing the right toy for my godchild. He's been diagnosed with autism and he is relatively inattentive. What toys are best for him?

It depends, how old is she/he? You can try blocks, sound puzzles, educational DVDs and books.

Hi, thank you for your reply. He is 5 years old and already attends therapy . I am thinking of toy trucks.

My brother is autistic and when he was young he was fascinated by anything with wheels, but particularly with trains.

As someone with mild autism who remembers what it was like to be an autistic child, my suggestion would be to find out what interests him the most and run with it. If he has an interest in cars, get toy cars. Trains? Toy trains. Animals? Well, this forum is a good place to start. As a small autistic child who was constantly fixated on one thing and one thing only (mine was animals, but it varies from person to person), that was the only thing I cared about. If it didn't have to do with my special interest, it was useless to me.

For me I have mild ADHD and for your case, I recommend articulated animals like Takara tomy Ania
