Many children with autism want to join in with the social play of other children, but may not know how. These Pocket Game Cards describe ordinary, often traditional, games that are especially suited for playing with mixed groups of children, with and without autism.
Pocket Game Cards include games that have been carefully chosen in terms of the amount of skill required in playing them, for example, in language, imagination or motor coordination. Simple and straightforward ideas are given on how to provide support within the game playing for children who have difficulty with these kinds of play skills.
It is probable that many of the skills needed for interpersonal engagement, friendship and play can only be acquired within the actual context of children’s everyday playful encounters. The focus here is on enabling children with autism to play games with other children so that, through playing games, learning can take place.
An easy to use resource that can be dipped into for ideas again and again.
