Lekotek works with families who have a child, or children, aged 0-8 with special needs. The word Lekotek is Swedish for "play." Children learn through play and exploration. Children with special needs may need additional assistance and guidance during the learning process. Lekotek teaches families to use toys and play activities to help their child with special needs learn and reach new goals.
We accept referrals to the Lekotek program from families, healthcare professionals, social services and school systems. Upon referral, the family will be contacted and an intake will be arranged. Services through the Lekotek program include individual play sessions with the family, access to playgroups, a bi-monthly newsletter and family social events.
