I like hunting a mixture of typical toys with specific special needs toys:

Some of my favorite special needs sites are:

Adaptive Tech Solutions:
http://adaptivetechsolutions.com/

Ablenet
http://ablenetinc.com/

Fat Brain Toys:
https://www.fatbraintoys.com/

In the UK I like these sites:
Blossom for Children
http://blossomforchildren.co.uk/  (They will not ship to the USA)

Special Needs Toys (Also known as TFH)
http://www.specialneedstoys.com/uk/
There is also a USA site
http://www.specialneedstoys.com/usa/

I love also finding typical toys that work well for children to that have special needs to reduce holiday costs for families that have children with special needs.  And assist them in finding a way to switch adapt toys themselves to also save on costs.  There is a great organization that will also assist with this called Santa’s Little Hackers:
http://www.santaslittlehackers.com/

And a site that helps support ideas for Christmas ideas for families who have children with special needs:
