How to use this game with your autistic child
I use a lot of matching games at my learning center to get my kids excited about playing a little game together and building visual and vocabulary skills.
These are some learning prompts that you can use with your fish matching game :
- Say “match” and guide your child to match each of the fish photos to it’s identical twin.
- Say “where is the _________?” and name the fish (if your child is learning to name each fish).
- Ask “what is the name of this fish?” (if your child is learning to name each fish).
- Say “show me the blue ones!” (to teach your child to sort according to color, for each color).
- Ask “how many?” (to teach your child to count the fish).
- Ask your child “which one is your favorite?” (to engage your little one in some fun and interactive open communication).
