HOPE [Home Organization of Parent Educators]


Sensory University
When our store initially opened, our primary focus was on special needs products and toys for the children treated in our facility. Over the years, our inventory has increased to cover a full spectrum of educational items and pediatric fitness products, as well as a library of over 100 titles dedicated to improving the lives of children with many different forms of developmental delay. While we maintain our core special needs product line, we now offer many products geared towards the everyday cardiovascular, gross motor, sensory, and strength development of all children.
