Excellent Gift Ideas for Autistic 7 Year Old Girl | AD

If you are looking for gift ideas for an autistic girl, you have come to the right place. This guide will take you through some excellent gift ideas for autistic 7 year old girls. From audiobook players and educational games, to fidget toys and sensory gifts, to creative gifts, to toys that encourage physical activity – you’ll find them all here. Most of these gifts would also be suitable for autistic girls who are slightly younger or older – perhaps in the 6-10 year old age range. Let’s get started and explore some wonderful gift ideas for girls with autism.

Voxblock Screen-free Audiobook Player + Books Autism Gift for Autistic Children

Audiobooks for Children with Autism

First, let’s explore one of my favourite gift ideas for children with autism – a screen-free audiobook player that’s really easy to use.

  • Voxblock Screen-free Audiobook Player + Books

Voxblock is a screen-free and Wi-Fi-free children’s audiobook player. It’s really easy to use independently for children of all ages. The audiobooks look like miniature books and simply slot into the player. The Voxblock audiobook player has just a few simple buttons that you use to select chapters, set the volume and to play and pause the book. It also has a bedtime mode feature that turns the player off after 20 minutes which is perfect for bedtime stories.

Audiobooks are great for all children but can be especially beneficial for neurodivergent children. This is because listening to a story instead of reading it can help autistic children better understand things like inflection and sarcasm. It also helps them with their reading comprehension.

Can You See Me Audiobook Bundle audiobook bundle Voxblock player autism

In this series, we follow Libby Scott’s diary entries and her own experiences of autism. It’s a widely praised book series for its realistic portrayal of autism. These books are amazing and great for autistic girls and for anyone with a family member or friend who has autism.

Toys that Encourage Physical Activity

Physical activity is important for everyone of course. For autistic girls, it can provide a great way to decrease negative behaviours and hyperactivity for example. It can also be a form of entertainment and helps increase coordination, strength, and body awareness too. As autistic children tend to have special interests and often enjoy doing the same things over and over again, you might find that they are really good at their preferred sport or game too.

    Conclusion – Gift Ideas for Autistic 7 Year Old Girl

    Hopefully this guide has given you some ideas if you’re wondering what to buy for an autistic 7 year old. Autistic children can enjoy all kinds of toys, but in this article I have highlighted some options that I think are especially well suited to the needs and interests of many autistic girls around this age group. Just like any other child, autistic children have their own personal interests too of course. It’s always a good idea to ask the parent of the child what they think their child would like or if they have any special interests that are extra important at the moment.
