Overview

101 Games and Activities for Children With Autism, Asperger's and Sensory Processing Disorders / Edition 1

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

One of the best ways for children with autism, Asperger's, and sensory processing disorders to learn is through play. Children improve 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 on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorders is how 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 how to teach your children by moving their bodies through play. These interactive games are quick to learn but will provide hours of fun and learning for your child. And many of the games can be played indoors or outdoors, so your child can enjoy them at home, outside, or on field trips.

More than one hundred games that help your child:

  • make eye-contact, stay focused, and strengthen his or her motor skills
  • associate words with objects and improve language and numerical skills
  • learn how to interact with others, how to take turns, and other social skills needed for attending preschool and school

The activities and the layout out of this book is awesome and easy to read. I can easily see myself doing all of the activities listed. At the beginning of each activity it states what items you need (which are all common items that I already had in my house) then it explains how to do the activity and WHY! So many of the activities were so fun and simple to do, kids don't even realize they are learning, they think they are just having fun. This book would be great for anyone who has kids, works with kids, with or without special needs.
