Children Succeed Autistic Games: Step Into Conversation

PRODUCTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | 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.

    What great tools to use. I have a grandson that I am raising that has autism. It’s really hard to find the right tool to help him learn and pratice his social skills. I will have to look in our resource center to see if they have these. Thank for posting!
