LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
One of the most efficient ways for children with autism, Asperger’s, and sensory processing disorders to be informed is through play. Children give a boost to their motor skills, language skills, and social skills by moving their bodies and interacting with their environment. Yet the biggest challenges parents, teachers, and loved ones face with children at the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorders is methods to successfully engage them in play.
Pediatric occupational therapist Tara Delaney provides the answer. In 101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger’s, and Sensory Processing Disorders, she shows you methods to teach your children by moving their bodies through play. These interactive games are quick to be informed but will provide hours of fun and learning for your child. And a number of the games will also be played indoors or outdoors, so your child can enjoy them at home, outdoor, or on field trips.
More than one hundred games that assist your child:
- make eye-contact, stay focused, and support his or her motor skills
- associate words with objects and give a boost to language and numerical skills
- learn methods to interact with others, methods to take turns, and other social skills needed for attending preschool and school
