During daily instruction, our students learn functional and academic skills through individual and small group direct instruction. Our students receive that instruction and then work to apply those skills while participating in activities and games. The important skills that these games and activities will help with are peer play/turn-taking, accepting mistakes, logical thinking, sorting skills, imaginative play, motor skills, and academic skills. Peer play and turn taking is one of the most important skills that many of these games, like “Chickyboom”, “Bus Stop”, and “The Tower”, can provide. Children with autism struggle with peer interactions and games are a great way to increase their tolerance and to provide instruction on how to play with peers. “Cutting food” activity can include important skills such as matching pieces, sorting by category, fine motor skills, sharing and imaginative play. Imaginative play does not always come easily for children with autism. Some students might not know what it means to pretend to eat and this activity along with some teacher modeling, can help expand a student’s imaginative play. An activity like “Button Art” and “The Tower” can help students with logical thinking in order to achieve a specific outcome. Accepting mistakes can be difficult for many children, especially those with autism. This can impede social interaction with peers. The game “Chickyboom” contains an error where the entire perch falls down but each round is very quick and allows the children to try again after making a mistake, reducing the anger and frustration children might feel. The activities and games that “Tiggly Words” offer makes learning letters, reading and spelling more exciting. These games and activities will capture their attention and interest, which will motivate them to want to learn, and help them apply important functional and academic skills.
