Kids with autism grasp this rather quickly (depending on severity of autism), but it makes for a great game and easier to understand each other. 🙂
If you maintain control of the supplies, painting is good and flash cards of colors and animals and such.
My oldest is 12 and high functioning, and would like to play clue, monopoly, video games. He likes to play dominos and card games like Fluxx.
My daughter with autism is still learning HOW to play board games, so she’s ten and doing Hi Ho Cheerio, Candyland, playing duck duck goose and peek-a-boo.We’re also teaching her to play slap jack and war with the cards.
Good luck, my kids have been the biggest blessing for me, I’ve learned so much about life.
