American International Toy Fair 2015 – 11 Games I’m Most Excited About for Kids with Autism

Posted by on Feb 21, 2015 in FEATURED, Opinion

Oh, Toy Fair, I love you so! There are tons of new releases coming out this year, but here are a few that I am particularly excited about introducing to my students. Also, please note that none of these games is designed for students with special needs. Each game below is a mainstream game that students with autism may find motivating, which opens up opportunities to practice essential skills and engage in age-appropriate social interactions. Hucklebee Game by Mindware – Hucklebee is just too cute. The stuffed bee comes with 25 double-sided action cards that get young kids identifying colors, shapes, body parts, and more. Again, this is very easy to modify to meet the needs of your child, and it’s fun for group activities, too. Recommended for ages 1-4. Juliette 2 Domino by Haba – I use dominoes a lot with my students and can’t wait to get a set of these double-sided dominoes! One side is an alphabet puzzle, while the other side are picture dominoes that help with matching and counting skills. Haha also has the Jef 2 Domino set for your learners who love dogs or are highly motivated by animals. Lilliputiens Lotocolor by Haba – I love that this activity can be completed independently...
