Games For Kids With Autism

2934868755_00982a4a97_zYour teen’s level of development may be more attuned for working with math and numbers, or perhaps he or she is more comfortable with pictures, words, or music. Maybe they prefer to explore nature, or venture into the vast uncharted wilderness of the digital world.

Those are all called multiple intelligences, but we prefer to think of them as abilities. Our games for kids with autism are designed with the intention to help you discover and build upon your teen’s unique abilities.

To your son or daughter we offer fun, challenging games to play — but for parents, these games are more like a set of tools to help you develop a deeper understanding of your own child.

Difficulty Levels Of Our Games For Kids With Autism

One of the reasons why autistic teens have difficulty with social play is because they find themselves with others who are playing at a higher level. This leaves them feeling confused and discouraged, which is exactly what we want to avoid.

Our games for kids with autism offer a range of difficulties, which gives your child the opportunity to play at a level where they feel comfortable. They can always gradually move up in difficulty when they feel ready. We encourage parents and children to start with easier games and work their way up.

Developing Abilities With Games For Kids With Autism

At Identifor, we’re all about helping parents and teens finding that elusive balance between what someone is interested in, and how to use that interest to develop further interests and skills. That’s why we have created a wide variety of games so you can find the ones that best suit your teen.

For teens who love numbers, we have plenty of math games. For teens who love images, we have many visual-spatial games. For teens who love words, there are many word-centric games as well — and the list goes on.

When your teen is engaged in a game that includes elements of their unique interests, they often end up excelling at that game and playing at higher levels more quickly.

How Games For Kids With Autism Can Expand Your Teen’s Interests

While our games are designed to cater to your teen’s interests, they’re also meant to broaden them. By incorporating elements of other interests into these games we find that it helps to expose kids to new things, and before long they’ve found new things to occupy their mind.

Over time, your teen’s game sessions should turn into a mix of various kinds of games, and less focused on the specific interest which got them playing in the first place.

A wide array of different kinds of games will allow your teen to learn much more than they could by continually playing a game that’s focused on a single theme, no matter how creative that game might be.
