One of our very first sponsors for our very first giveaway was The Therapy Shoppe. If you are looking for gifts this holiday season that are fun and helpful or need to find something special for your child’s teacher to use in the classroom, they should be your first stop. Toys are clearly organized to let you find just the thing for whatever challenging your child is facing and if you’re still not sure, you can take advantage of their terrific customer service and contact them to get some direction.
