When the twins were first diagnosed with cerebral palsy and the holidays rolled around, I found books a great opportunity to casually introduce other young family and friends to the idea of their disability.
You can just add a children's book to a gift bag or basket with other toys and gifts. It needs no further explanation and offers some disability awareness and education.

Here is a link to many children's books dealing with special needs. Although I am not familiar with any of the books on the list they do look interesting!

Susan Laughs is one example:   Willis, Jeanne. Susan Laughs. Red Fox Books. (2001). 36p. ISBN 0099407566.

Shows all the things Susan does (plays, gets in trouble, etc.). To the reader’s surprise, the last page reveals that she is in a wheelchair. Levinson, Marilyn. And Don’t Bring Jeremy. (2000). 132p. ISBN 0595169198.

Here is another
:Levinson, Marilyn. And Don’t Bring Jeremy. (2000). 132p. ISBN 0595169198.

Story about Adam’s frustration with his autistic brother, Jeremy. The book talks about the real-life situations that Adam and Jeremy face. Jeremy is jealous of Adam and the plot culminates at an all-star baseball game.

Adapted clothes for kids and young adults...

Although these items are not going to fall into any "special savings" category, they definately do fit the bill for "special needs".
Here is the link to Smarty pants, an online site that makes clothes for special needs children and young adults. I am fascinated by their included slits for G tube feedings, velcro closures at seams to dress and undress over MAFOs, and the magnetic strip on a shirt to replace button closures.
I imagine we all have family and friends wanting holiday gift ideas and they may be willing to "foot the bill" knowing it would be a gift that is going to be used!

Some items include:

Racerback Striped Tunic (from Smartypants Workshop): This adorable spaghetti-strapped striped tunic is a fabulous choice for older girls with disabilities who want to take part in the dress/leggings trend. This dress has a horizontal soft hook/loop closure at the center back and left and right side seam slits for tube access. The dress is 96% cotton and 4% Spandex to add a touch of stretch; a great fabric for mobility issues

Flower Power Jumper (from Smartypants Workshop): This stretch corduroy jumper from Smartypants Workshop - one if the few wheelchair fashion companies for kids with disabilities - will make every girl who wears it feel like the coolest girl on the block. It has a fun geometric pattern and several smart wheelchair fashion design features, such as a full-length inseam zipper, strategically placed G-tube slit, and extra room in the hip/bottom area.

The Cruiser (from Smartypants Workshop): The Smartypants Workshop also has a cool line of wheelchair fashion for boys. The Cruiser is one of their most popular tops. It’s a faux button-up short sleeve shirt (100% cotton) with a modern skateboarder print. The buttons aren’t actually buttons, and instead the shirt sports a Velcro strip closure for easy dressing.

Interesting website featuring a man with cerebral palsy who speaks on bullying...

child with special needs being bullied

Tony Bartoli counsels students about how to put a stop to bullying.
Born with a mild-to-moderate case of cerebral palsy, Tony Bartoli encountered a lot of bullying while in school. As an adult, Bartoli wanted to change how kids with differences, including disabities, get treated at school, so in 2004 he started traveling across the country to help raise awareness about the seriousness of bullying.
Bartoli progressed into middle school, and the bullying turned physical. Incidents included being shoved in the hallway, or thumped on the back of the head while he was riding the school bus.

The bullying increased in frequency, sometimes as often as four days out of five. The bullying made Bartoli feel isolated, and he increasingly kept to himself.

Bartoli emphasizes to students who are being bullied that the bullying shouldn’t last. If you are on the receiving end of bullying, take action! Check out Tony Baroli’s website. If you, or somebody you know, is experiencing problems with bullying, Bartoli welcomes emails at

Socks for children, but could be helpful for self care skills....

Here is the link to another online invitation shopping website called Totsy.

Although these socks are made for children in general, I could not help but notice that they could be a great tool for children with special needs who are working at self dressing!  The deal lasts for 3 days before it disappears, so if you want them you have to get on it!  They are on sale for $2.99 a pair, but I am unsure of the shipping may want to order several to get the most for the shipping costs.

EZ Sox are fun, whimsical socks that have reinforced loops that give tiny fingers a strong grip for pulling over tiny toes. EZ Sox helps build the confidence that pre-schoolers need as they learn to dress themselves.
EZ Sox's unique design helps your child put on their socks with ease. Reinforced loops give tiny fingers a strong grip for pulling over tiny toes. Cute animal faces act as a guide, showing them which way is up. Non-skid bottoms make EZ SOX safer on slippery surfaces. Made seamless for sensitive toes.
Fabric content:80% Combed cotton, 17% Polyester, 3% Spandex

Another sale going on at Totsy is from Nest:
Nest Boys

Nest is a playful collection of clothing for babies and kids in easy-to-coordinate colors and designs! This sale features boys' pants, tees, polos and sweaters in organic fabrics that are made to uphold against the wear and tear of active, fun-loving kids while still looking stylish. Practical, durable and unique, this line will look great on your little guy!

Stripe Sweater $9.

Kettler is also featured, including their famous sand digger!

Kettler Cat Digger

Totsy Price

Your little ones are sure to dig this fun toy! The Cat Digger features an oversized seat that rotates 360 degrees, a scoop with dual action handles and is constructed of high carbon steel. Dimensions: 39.5" H x 16.5" W x 22" D. Recommended for ages 3+.
