New Autism Games is Organized by Language Level

Below is the Index of Games Collections on the new Autism Games Website--organized by language level.  I hope this will make it much easier for users to find games this way.  I have not finished all the pages.  I have lots of game clips that still need to be linked into these pages.  But this is the framework.  The game pages are linked below--click and try any one that catches your fancy:


Finding Games at the Right Level of Difficulty

  • Beginner Games are for children who are not yet verbal or are just learning their first words
  • Intermediate Games are for children who are putting at least a few words together
  • Advanced Games  are for children who are at least starting to put sentences together.

More About Levels

 Beginning games can be played with any child including a child who is not yet talking and not yet able to interact socially with others.  More able learners may enjoy these games too.  You may want to introduce simple versions of new games from the beginner section and then gradually modify the game to the more difficult level.  Any child may enjoy these simple games and playing easier games encourages joyful social interaction and builds social confidence.   Index
Intermediate games are for children who know and use  at least a couple dozen words and are starting to combine words (or signs or picture symbols)These games let children play with more kinds of language and try out different kinds of social interactions.  You may want to start out with the beginning level version of a game when you first teach a new game. (This means, go back to a red level games)  More able learners will enjoy many of these games as well.  Index
Advanced games are for children who can use original sentences and are learning to combine sentences in order to tell a story, participate in a conversation, or narrate pretend play. These games are less structured, have more steps and/or involve more pretend play or more people.Purple games may involve analyzing, remembering, planning, & creating.   Some games are introduced as an Intermediate game.      Index
