Finding the perfect gift for your child with autism, or the child with autism on your holiday gift list can be a challenge. Some children have sensory difficulties, are easily overstimulated or can be sent into a meltdown if given the wrong gift. I receive so many questions from families asking me what they should buy for their kids with autism every holiday season, which inspired me to put together the Ultimate Guide to Gifts for kids with Autism. Scroll through this list and find the gift you are looking for!

I love these adorable personalized wooden name puzzles. They are the perfect gift to give a child learning to write his or her name. As an added bonus, the child will also be able to build fine motor skills and independent play skills while playing with the puzzle.
If you are planning to gift a wooden name puzzle to a very young child or a child that is struggling with fine motor skills, I would recommend getting the wooden name puzzle with pegs.
