The National Lekotek Center is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization based in Chicago, Illinois, and is the administrative and training center for a nationwide network of Lekotek centers housing family play facilities, toy lending libraries and computer play resources. Clinical evidence affirms that early intervention using strategic play techniques profoundly affects a child's learning capacity. Lekotek uses interactive play experiences, and the learning that results, to promote the inclusion of children with special needs into family and community life.
