Welcome to Lovevery’s Disability Support Service

Lovevery’s mission is to give families a support system for child development with expert-designed play essentials and resources. Our evidence and research-backed approach encourages cognitive, social-emotional, fine motor, gross motor, communication, and practical life skills—all through the joy of play.

We know Lovevery play essentials aren't just for children developing according to a typical schedule—they’ve been used by families, therapists, and educators to help children learn, grow, and play exactly where they’re at.

Currently, Lovevery’s Play Kits follow a traditional developmental trajectory; however, as we follow current developmental research, we recognize that each child has their own unique timeline. In recognition of such developmental diversity, we’ve launched a Disability Support Service to help more families understand how Lovevery play essentials can meet their children’s individual interests and abilities.

Our Disability Support Service connects you with experts who understand child development—and who know Lovevery’s offerings inside out. By providing inclusive personalized guidance, we can help you choose Play Kits, Playthings, books, and caregiver learning resources that will best support your child.

“To a child’s development, play is an essential mechanism for growth and progress. For a child with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), play can be an even more powerful vehicle for development. Lovevery products increase a child’s motivation to engage in social interactions, and given their thoughtful design, can be used in a variety of play strategies. For instance, The Play Gym is one that can be used in any stage of development, making it ideal for the many children whose development follows a different trajectory. It can be used to build early cognitive skills, joint attention skills (key for social engagement!), and verbal skills in both personal and therapeutic use.”
