Children Succeed Autistic Games: Step Into ConversationPRODUCTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | Nirasha Jaganath | November 9, 2009 at 9:26 pm
Back in April, when I heard it was Autism month, I published several posts on Autism, including a post with Children Succeed, the makers of several games geared towards kids with autism. Since then I have received so much of requests for more information and being a topic that is so close to my heart (along with many other moms) I am featuring each of the Autism Games with Children Succeed to help highlight this amazing venture.
Truthfully don’t be fooled by the simplistic site of Children Succeed, I have met Joan Nash, school psychologist and the creator of these games and after 20 years of experience she more than knows her stuff. What seems like a game to children also forms therapy. The nature of all games are simple yet focused. Here is what they say Step into conversation helps you achieve:
Targets the following skills:
- Improving Social Relationships
- Initiating Conversation
- Staying on Topic
- Asking Relevant Questions
- Taking Turns
- Answering Questions Appropriately
- Making Eye Contact
I am going to let Joan Nash explain each game so that you full understand. I request you to feel free to ask any questions in the comments so that we can answer them.
