What do the teachers for children with autism recommend:

  • Boost your child’s skills through a jigsaw puzzle. Make one together and teach your child to share, work together and wait for its turn.
  • Pick up a jigsaw puzzle with bright colors and images that stimulate the interest and thought of the child. Joining the pieces together or putting the puzzles in wedges also helps the child’s delicate movement.

A simple game that enhances your child’s memory:

Choose memory card games that show objects from different categories, e.g. fruits, animals, clothes, etc. Mix and ask your child to find pairs of cards coming from the same category.
