I recently read the latest issue of the Autism Parenting Magazine and it had a great article about the best board games for children with ASD. I’ll share them with you today!
CANDYLAND – This game teaches kids to manage disappointment in front of others and how to handle it.
BATTLESHIP – This game teaches logical thinking and reasoning. Children will also learn to strategize and plan.
CHESS – a great strategy game!
MASTERMIND – involves thinking and rational reasoning.
CHINESE CHECKERS – simple game but involves strategy.
SCRABBLE – teaches spelling and social interactions.
Board games are beneficial to children with ASD because they will improve language development, math skills, and learn to follow directions and control emotions.
