Mission: RePlay for Kids is an organization that repairs and modifies toys and assistive devices for use by children with disabilities. RePlay for Kids provides these services at no cost for non-profit organizations that provide medical, educational, or recreational resources for children with disabilities in Northeast Ohio. Most of these organizations have limited resources and often cannot afford to replace devices that have broken, and do not have the technical knowledge or time available to repair the devices. RePlay for Kids can provide these services, therefore increasing the number of functioning toys and assistive devices available for children with disabilities.
Professional with expertise in this field
As a speech pathologist working with young children with disabilities, I love the adapted toys that Replay for Kids provides. I am able to loan toys out to families to try with their children. The variety of toys adapted is a great help as we try to find something motivating to each individual child. Often these early cause and effect toys set the stage for more complex communication using augmentative switches or devices down the road.
