ASTRAA new publication of the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association aims to provide store staff guidelines for helping customers adapt play activities and toy purchases for children with special needs. The ASTRA Guide to Toys for Children with Disabilities [PDF] contains information about different types of disabilities, how to work with customers to address particular needs, and protocols for appropriate language when speaking about disabilities. It also includes toy recommendations in several categories.

The Guide is available to ASTRA members for a nominal fee of $30 and to non-members for $129.
