I love dramatic play. At Le Chemin ABA, we have so much fun playing different types of dramatic (symbolic) play games!
For children with autism, these types of games are quite abstract and often difficult to understand. We break down our dramatic play themes into several, clear steps to make them understandable and fun for children with autism.
Learning to play dramatic play games, provides children with autism with game choices to share with regularly developing children. These games help increase appropriate social skills and interactions for children with autism and other special needs.
Today, I will share with you some of my favorite dramatic play themes with awesome tutorials for creating similar games at home with your little ones!
1.Hair salon from Strong Start.
2.Florist from Play to Learn Preschool.
