Centering on Children is dedicated to providing creative learning activities for autistic individuals or those with learning disabilities who are beginning the process of 'learning how to learn.' They are the sole-source distributor of ShoeboxTasks®, employing adults on the autism spectrum in their Vocational Workshop, who work in packaging and assembling the Tasks with the guidance of job coaches. Please note: all manipulatives are easy to handle and large enough to prevent swallowing.
