100 products to support children
with special needs
Nathan has always sought the development and growth
of every child.
This product selection is our response to the special therapy
and learning situations experienced by all special education
(infant teachers, occupational therapists, speech therapists,
psychologists, etc.) who support children with disabilities on
a daily basis.
It is the result of close collaboration with cerebral palsy
experts. We would like to thank them for applying their
knowledge and expertise to the testing of the materials chosen
for this guide.
We have designed this guide to steer your choice of educational games and learning
materials.
This selection is taken from the 2015 edition of the Nathan Learning Materials catalogue.
